The Blame Game

This afternoon BigZabba spent some time with a friend. When I picked her up I was told that BigZabba had to be talked to about pushing and pulling her friend's hair. So later I talked with BigZabba about what had happened...

Me - Can you tell me what happened today? I was told that you got in trouble.
BZ - Well, I was trying to get her to stop spinning and play with me.
Me - So, what did you do?
BZ - I tried to get her attention.
Me - So, what did you do?
BZ - Mommy I am trying not to tell you because there's a part that's bad.

(At least she is honest!!)

Later, after she admitted that she had pushed her friend and pulled her hair, she started playing the "blame game."

"Mommy, I didn't think I should pull her hair, but my hands did. They said, (she said this part in a really girly high pitched voice) Let's go over there and pull her hair! Mommy, my hands don't think very well."

Oh my gosh, that kid has so much personality. Too much for that little body to contain. I laughed out loud at this. I'm so glad you're writing these things down!

I need to read this to Chris and have my mom and sis read it. TOO FUNNY!!! Do you just want to die laughing at what comes out of that little mouth sometimes??
