We had a truth telling issue this morning.

And so, for five minutes today we were headed to Great Wolf Lodge.  A surprise I didn’t even know about.

My husband shared the excitement with our son who nearly danced right out of his pjs.

Great Wolf Lodge?  Ah…no way.  He couldn’t believe it.

And then my husband spoke again.

We weren’t going.

No Great Wolf Lodge.

My son’s lip fell to his waist.  “But you said…” he sputtered.

And my husband nodded.  He let the hurt sink in.  And then he spoke.

“That’s lying, son.  And that’s how lying feels.  It makes people sad.”

We both watched as our little boy took a big boy breath and made a man size promise to tell the truth.

At least to try.
