You think I would have learned by now that my children can’t keep a secret. At all. Not even for five minutes. Yesterday the girls and I went shopping for a Valentine present for my wife. We hit up the jewelry store and they found a very nice looking necklace. My oldest insisted that this necklace was the one WE HAD TO GET FOR MOM. I agreed that it was nice (and the price was right) so we bought it and had it wrapped up.
Fast forward to just after 5 p.m. and the instant my wife walks through the door I hear my three year old yell out “MOM WE GOT YOU A NECKLACE!” “IT’S SOOO PRETTY!” “IT’S A SURPRISE!”
…….I could barely understand what just happened….My wife was almost crying from laughing……
I should have know this was going to happen. It happened before Christmas. It happened before my wife’s birthday.
I need to remember that my kids can’t keep a secret.
