glass flowers



Ruby: Here mom, I have some lovely flowers for you.

Me: Thank you Ruby, but I thought I asked you not to pick any more of our flowers.

Ruby: I didn't pick our flowers, mom! I got them from the the market. Yeah, I just walked to the market, and saw these most beautiful shiny flowers, and I asked the man if I could get them, and he said yes, and then he told me that they were made of glass, kind of like Cinderella's slippers. So I brought them home from the market just for you, mom.

Me: Wow, that's quite the story. You wouldn't lie to me now would you?

Ruby: No! I Promise.


What the girl lacks in integrity, she makes up for in imagination.

I don't know...sounds legit to me.

(And why are you letting her go out shopping on her own? Really! Such appalling parenting!) ;D

Lol! Love Lacking Productivity's comment! What ARE you doing letting little Ruby go shopping on her own? Truly lovely.

What a sweet little gal. I think that stage is going to be hilarious!! I can't wait for the big elaborate stories. It will be hard to teach them lying is wrong when you can barely hold in the laughter!
