Don't Lie to Your Kids

Back when Jack was burping all the time, one of my commenters told me about when she was little and burped in front of her mom all the time. Her mom told her if she didn't stop, she'd have to take her to the doctor to have her burper disconnected.

I laughed and moved on.

But then, a few days later, after hours of continual burping and being trapped in the car with all of my kids, I snapped and told Jack that if he kept burping, I was going to have to take him to the doctor and get him deburped.

I know. It was wrong. I regretted it instantly. Fortunately, karma was prepared to teach me a lesson.

Jack wanted to be deburped.

It all finally came to a head tonight when I told Jack that we couldn't deburp him.

Now about that Santa Claus thing...
