Babies Do Not Lie


             
 
Before my son was born I read dozens of parenting books and since I write for children I still read   books about early childhood; in which the opinions and theories of the authors differ on just how old children are when they begin to lie. Well, I couldn't think of a joke today for Silly Sunday, so I decided to tell a silly story instead, which according to my mother is true. 
 
I am the youngest of three children. I have two older brothers, and the younger of the two was still in diapers when I was born.  My mother was having trouble potty training my brother (David) who should have been out of diapers by the time it was my turn, but he was still emotionally wrestling with my existence and naturally wished to remain the baby.
 
Anyway, when I was about eighteen months old I was almost potty trained, but one day I made a mistake and used my diaper which I'm told I knew was a big no-no. 
 
Well, clearly my mother discovered my accident, and irritably asked me,  
 
"Ann, why did you use your diaper when you know better?"
 
My reply? 
 
"I didn't Mom, David did."
 
 :)
 
I hope you enjoyed my silly story and I would love to read yours, so be sure to click on the link above to Comedy Plus and get the Misty Linky code and join in the fun.
 
Thanks for visiting A Nice Place In The Sun and have a wonderful day, evening, or afternoon depending upon which time zone you live in. 
 
And, thank you, Sandee for sharing Silly Sunday with us every week. It's a blast and I enjoy it-


Whoops!

Note: I'm sorry, but my computer says that the Mister Linky tag is broken, so I cannot post the other participants links, but you can find the code by clicking on the "Silly Sunday" link at the beginning of this post.-  I've been having trouble with my computer all afternoon, so I'm sure it will not be a problem for you.  

Now, I'm going to throw my computer out of my living room window, :)

I think you did a fine job. I'll bet it made your mother laugh.

I can't add your linky code. It won't let me alter your post. Oh well.

Have a fabulous day my friend. Big hug to you and lots of scritches to Simon. ♥♥♥

Thanks Ann. I guess the story telling started early. -Laughing-

Thank you, Sandee. I tried. And you're right, it did make my mother laugh. It still does...That's how I found out. She tells that story all of the time.

Thank you for trying to post the Mister Linky code. I do not know what it's problem is...I thought maybe you didn't have the new password, but it sounds like you signed it. In any event, it was nice of you to try it.

And, I love it when you like my posts. It makes me happy. :)

Simon and I send you "Big Hugs."

xoxo

Motherhood- Courage


Motherhood is an art impossible to explain, one which requires a vast sea of love, devotion, compassion, and understanding, unmatched by any affection we will ever know again.- Ann Clemmons

Words-

Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.

Written Phrase

Why is it that those we should know or believe turn out to be the ones we least understand? I suppose the world is an illusion until we find our way home.-Ann Clemmons

Favorite Phrase

I remember I used to half believe and wholly play with fairies when I was a child. What heaven can be more real than to retain the spirit-world of childhood, tempered and balanced by knowledge and common-sense...

Beatrix Potter’s Journal, 17 November 1896, from the National Trust collection.

The Storyteller, by Dawn Drover

Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light

She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free

For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well

Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination


Written for Ann

F. Scott Fitzgerald. (Lines from The Great Gatsby)
"A Southerner Talks Music"

Mark Twain

"A book must be the ax for the frozen sea inside us."

An author values a compliment even when it comes from a source of doubtful competency.
