Smack Smack Smack

This just in...
Earlier today, my eight year old daughter called me from her cell phone while I was at work. I was in a meeting and since she never calls from her cell phone, I figured it MUST be an emergency and so I answered.

Me: "Hello? Is everything ok?"

Eight Year Old: "Hi Mommy! I just wanted to let you know that Brandon (her 9 year old brother) got sent to the Principal's office.......pause.......AND I DIDN'T!"

Me: (Smacking palm of hand to forehead while wondering where the emergency part would come up...) No WAY would she call just to tell on her brother, would she? Surely there would be more to her phone call, right?

Eight Year Old: "Mommy? Hello? Mommy, I just really wanted to make sure you knew he got sent to the Principal's and I didn't!"

Me: (Smack smack smack)
