My son ate his whole dinner before getting that ice cream out and Betty Bunny didn’t do it. Yep, both are lies. When my son discovered lying, I decided to introduce him to Betty Bunny. Betty Bunny has also just discovered that she doesn’t have to tell the truth. It’s such an epiphany that she wonders why she’s never thought of it before. When she accidentally breaks a lamp, she blames it on the tooth fairy. When her mom asks her if that’s the honest truth, she happily replies, “No. It’s an honest lie!” Later on, though, no one believes her when a vase is broken – and she really *didn’t* break it this time! When her brother confesses to breaking the vase, he apologizes and cleans it up. Seeing that her mother is pleased with his confession, Betty starts confessing to everything she’s ever done wrong and then some. After some explanation, Betty realizes that it is telling the truth that is valued – so she tells Daddy Bunny how much he stinks! Betty may be a handful, but she’s a lot of fun to have around (like someone else I know!).
One little note – At one point, the oldest brother says, “Mom is going to kill you!” We don’t say that in our house, so a quick substitute was in order.
