Are You a Liar?

Another quick funny. {I'm trying to be better at sharing my little stories, because I keep getting comments from people who are disappointed in my blogging lately. If you are one of them, please take note of my renewed efforts!}

Adjoa comes scampering in, returning from the bathroom

A: Ma! I flush!
Me: Yeah! Good girl! Did you wash?
A: Yes.
Me: Really? {I didn't hear the water running so I'm thinking that's a big negative}
Adjoa nods ever so certainly.
Me: Are you a liar?
A: I go and wash!

And she runs off to the bathroom.

That's the phrasing they use in Ghana - 'you are a liar' - if someone if not being truthful. No hedging or beating around the bush. Call it like it is. It seems to work perfectly with 2-year-olds!

Here's precious picture of my little liar. :)

Reminds me so much of morning devotional and Kingsley asking the kids if they prayed before devotional. Some things they are taught do stick.
