the cell phone story gets EVEN BETTER!
i left the phone where he could find it, by mistake. my phone was broken so i had been using his off & on & well.. goofed late at night. he got up in the middle of the night and found it. i didnt realize it was missing until i arrived home from a haircut at 630pm. i told him i had misplaced it, he even moved off the couch so i could "search"under the cushions. i asked him where it was. he answered "you and dad took it, i have no idea." i went into his room and dialed the cell phone number. it rang from inside a drawer behind his bedroom door. he had hidden it in the velcro pocket of a pair of shorts he cant fit into anymore. he hung his head, and without a word, handed me the phone. as much as i wanted to say "HERES YOUR SIGN!" i just exited the room, shutting the door behind me with him behind it.
i swear, these kids think i am STUPID!
