I Forgot to Mention We're Lying

At $700 for a family of four to join the swim club, I had no problem saying that the little guy was 2 rather than 3. 2 and under is free.

Unfortunately, I forgot to mention this to Maeve and Charlie when we went in person to register and pay for the membership.

"OK," I told the two guys behind the counter. "We'll take the family of four membership. I have a little one at home, but he's only 2."

Maeve and Charlie in stereo ...

"Noooooooooo!!!! Dad. He's 3!!! He's 3!!! Don't you know your own son???"

Barely able to look at the guys behind the counter, I say, "well, he just turned 3."

Maeve and Charlie in stereo ...

"Noooooooooo!!! Dad. He turned 3 a long time ago!!!"

At that point, all I could do was drop my head down in shame and slap my forehead while the two guys cracked up behind the counter.

"You got to teach your kids to lie a little better."

When you go to Disney don't take the kids to the ticket window when your buying passes.

Hehehe! That's what we get when we teach our children to tell the truth. :) I know my 4 year old would totally do that.

Thanks for the laugh.
