I'm not sorry.........

Every afternoon when Harrison gets home from school, he asks if he can go and play with the little boy who lives four houses down the street. Most of the time, I make his older brother go with him but on occasion I will let Harrison ride his scooter down there by himself.

Yesterday, when Harrison asked if he could go and play with Brady, I told him that he could. So off, he went down the street. A few minutes later, he came back and said that Brady was going to the pool and wanted to know if he could go. I told him no because we had to wait on Haley to get home. He grumbled about that a little bit but soon he was back outside playing with Holden.

Fast forward an hour. David comes in and says that Brady's dad had just dropped Harrison off. Off from where? Yes, you guessed it, the pool. It seems that Harrison was not outside playing with Holden. He was in fact at the pool with Brady. They had gone for a "quick dip" and Harrison decided that he would just tag along despite my saying no.

I called Harrison inside and asked him what he was thinking by leaving this house without me knowing and going to the pool. His reply was a shrug of the shoulders and an "I don't know what you are talking about kind of look". I sent him to his room so that he could think about what he had done. When I went upstairs to talk to him some more about it, I asked if he was sorry for doing something he wasn't suppose to be doing? To which he quickly replied, "Yes. Can I get out of my room now?"

So you see what it really boils down to is that he wasn't really sorry for doing it, he was just sorry he got caught.

Wow. Didn't Brady's dad call you and verify that he could go to the pool or did he just take a five year old's word for it that it was okay? Oh man. Can Harrison sit down now? LOL.

No actually he didn't call and ask which crossed my mind. But, Harrison can be pretty convincing.

That dad's a novice. LOL.
