I'm not sure what to be angrier about. The fact that Luke is lying or that he is so painfully bad at it. Don't get me wrong, he is a great kid, most of the time. I'm just starting to get really irritated by how much he lies.
As I mentioned, the lying isn't even convincing. The other night he comes to me, his face covered in chocolate -
Me: What are you eating?You think that's bad? Try what happened last week -
Me: Your face is covered in chocolate.
Luke: No it isn't.
Me: Stop lying and go wash your face.
Charlie: Luke bit my back!
Me: Luke, did you bite Charlie's back?
Luke: No! He bit his own back.
Me: Really? Can you bite your own back?
Luke: Yes. (Then he proceeds to try to bite his own back.)
I'm trying to stay positive, so I will tell you that at least I could laugh about the biting incident because Charlie was wearing such an ironic shirt. It said, "I don't bite, but he does." So true.
