When white lies backfire

This morning as Hannah was chewing her way through her toast and discarding the crusts, I attempted to negotiate some crust-eating. And by negotiation, I mean bribe. With chocolate. Doesn’t everyone do that? heh.

Anyway, her response to my request to eat the crusts was: “But I want to have plaits!”

Me: “You can have plaits. I’ll do them after. Now eat your crusts!”

Han: “Noooooo. I want plaiiiiiiiittttttttsssssss!”

At which point I was thoroughly confused. Then she elaborated her whinge…

“I don’t waaaaaaaant curly haaaaaaaaair!”

Me: “Ohhhhhhhhh right. Errrr.”

Apparently, somewhere along the way someone has given Hannah the “if you eat your crusts, your hair will go curly!” line.

  1. Ahahahaha! Classic. Welcome to my world – where your kid always knows better than you (just you wait *insert evil smiley here*


  2. Heh. I had the same problem when I was a kid. So my uncle told me that it was actually the other way around, and crust eating would make my teeth grow curly and my hair grow straight.
