Let the "DUPING" begin...

dupe [ doop ]

Definition: trick somebody: to persuade or induce somebody to do something by trickery or deception. He was duped into thinking that they intended to pay.

Holy Mother of Deception, it is starting already. I am talking about my 10 year old daughter. Oh, boy...
Hannah has her friend Alex over tonight. So as I am upstairs folding clothes - the two girls come in my room giggling. Now mind you the giggling and whispering began as soon as Alex got here. 5th grade girls - what do you expect??? So they come in. They ask if we can go eat at Metro Pizza tonight.

Now Garrin is a bit wired. No nap. He is pretty much hovering on the brink.....of something not so good - I am predicting. So I say "I am not sure about taking Garrin out, but we can certainly order Metro in..." This response was of course met with whining and pleading - "please, please, can we eat there?? Garrin will be fine."

I have never admitted anywhere/anytime that I can hold my ground when it comes to any of my kids - so we load up in the truck and head out.

So we walk in - Connor with Nintendo DS in hand, Garrin with Nintendo GameBoy (he has mastered playing Little Einsteins on it - not sure how), me and the giggling gaggle of girls. Once inside, while we are waiting for our table, I find the real reason it was ..................

imperative that we ate at Metro..................

A BOY.

I must just end the story here....what else is there to say...
