Tonight, Dawson was in the bathroom getting ready to take a shower and Emma was finishing up brushing her teeth. I was in the kitchen cleaning up after dinner. From the kitchen I hear a yell, a laugh and an, "I'm telling mom!" Dan is gone in North Platte so all that I am overhearing produces a big sigh from me. Dawson comes running to the kitchen in his Darth Vader undies with water all over his chest. He proceeds to yell at me that Emma threw a Dixie cup full of water at him. I heave another sigh and head to the bathroom. There is Emma waiting for me and this is the conversation that followed:
Me: Emma, why in the world did you throw a cup of water on your brother. You know better then that!
Emma: I wasn't throwing it at him. I was trying to do a trick where I catch the water in my cup. (Her big blue eye are wide and innocent.)
Me: Really Emma? Did you actually think that I was going to believe that one?
Emma (with that twinkle in her eye): No, but it was worth a try
