A Sneak Peek Inside Wifey’s House
Friday’s Confession ...
When I first started Wifey’s House every Friday, for some strange reason, I felt compelled to tell on myself about something I probably shouldn’t have thought, said or done. Go figure. Well, here I go again.
Yesterday I was quizzing my son on his multiplication tables and caught him trying to sneak a peek at his notebook when he didn’t know an answer.
“We don’t cheat,” I told him sternly. “I’d rather have you get it wrong, than cheat.”
I stood on my soapbox for a few seconds longer.
“Did you hear me?” I asked my 6-year-old daughter.
“OK, I just want to be clear. We don’t cheat – ever!”
And then I sat down, held my breath and waited for the lightening to strike. Coincidentally it was raining in Atlanta, but God must’ve had bigger fish to fry because I never saw the bolt.
I confess, I cheated on a math test in the 6th grade. Sorry Mrs. Kolinski. No, I wasn’t a serial cheater, but I did look to the left during that particular test and changed my answer to match the girl’s next to me. I was wrong, I felt bad and I quickly learned my lesson. The girl’s answer was incorrect and my original one was right.
*insert sigh here*
Thanks for letting me get that off my chest. Now I feel better and can tell my children not to cheat with a
guilty clear conscience. Did I share with them the blemish on my record? Um, no. Maybe one day I will, when they are old enough not to hold it against me.
