On Saturday we went to my brother and sister-in-law's house for dinner. It's still sometimes a challenge taking Charissa to someone else's house to eat because she gets distracted and it's a different place and she usually decides not to eat. We're also transitioning to a "big girl cup" (not a sippy cup) for meal times, which she's really good at, but still needs supervision to keep her from playing with the cup.
We had just finished dinner when she spilled her water all down the front of her shirt. It was just an accident due to inexperience with cups. Here's the conversation I had with CJ:
Me: Charissa, your shirt is all wet. What happened?
Charissa: Dog. [points to my brother's dog]
Me: The dog? Charissa, I asked you what happened to your shirt.
Charissa: Dog. [points again]
At this point, everyone was laughing so hard. Britt and I don't think she was really trying to blame her accident on the dog, but it was just so funny because it seemed like she was. (I honestly just think she was distracted by the fact that there were two dogs around her who were eagerly looking for scraps.) And of course my family thinks it's a great story so they will probably be telling the story of "Charissa's first lie" for the next 30 years.
It was pretty funny ...
