Tattle Tale?

Today I realized that Joey is such a tattle tale. But...not in the way you think.

The kids rats himself out!

Apparently he hasn't gotten the memo yet that you keep your lips zipped until someone else tells on you.
Not my Joey though, oh no; he is becoming a little Honest Abe at heart.

Today for instance I dropped him off at the Fred Meyer Playland so I could some grocery shopping because he SERIOUSLY ran from one side of the store to the other. All the while me chasing (slowly) behind him. I really didn't want to make a big scene and run sprints at the store. I did however catch up to him sitting on the couches, which apparently was his plan all along. After that nice ordeal...and everyone staring at mel I promptly checked him into Playland. I gave him the nice "reminder speech" to be a good boy and play nicely and walked away fully knowing that the attendant would probably not have good news for me.
After some leisurely shopping (I had an hour to myself) I went back to pick Joey up. The first thing out of his mouth...
"Joey a BAD baby!"

All I can think is....GREAT! I am not shocked or surprised because it's not news to me, but hey wait....did Joey just rat himself out? Now that is a surprise!

Of course Joey goes into no further detail then that and all the attendant could tell me was that he was very impatient...which means that he was demanding and wanted to be the center of attention. You can't fool me on little words that have make a large bite!

I then broke the news to the attendant that Joey is hyper all the time and let me tell you, she gave me those "sad, poor Mom eyes"! I don't know how I am supposed to take that, but whatever.

Anyways, I have started to think about it and Joey is always telling on himself. When I come home from Volleyball or running errands Joey always has the news to report first hand that he in fact was not well behaved. I just got back from working out and Joey told me, "Cody a bad baby". Which translates into, "I was not good for Uncle Cody."

So until Joey catches on I will take him being honest, unless he tells me I am smelly or something, then we will have to talk. I figure this phase is just incidental and I shouldn't push my luck and hope that Joey is always honest with me. I give him a year and half and he will start telling on others and keeping his lips sealed on his many a doings.
