Ellie has developed a habit of "stretching the truth" lately, and mostly with things that don't matter. Earlier today I walked in her room as she was writing on her leg and immediately informed me that Jensen did it. I was like, "uh, you are still writing, what do you mean?" Strange. But late tonight Ellie was getting more and more creative on her tactics to stay out of bed. She came out of the bathroom wanting me to run in and kill a moth. Jensen has developed a concern about moths as his eyes get real big and he gets really worried about the moth eating the clothes off his body. Despite this and even though our friend Jayna has had many near-death experiences with Moths, I told Ellie that I was confident that she could handle the situation. A minute later she shows up with half a moth. I asked her if she'd killed it (ready to give her a congratulatory high five). She said no. I was like, "but Jensen is in his bed.." She must have realized that she was in a corner, so thinking quickly said, "the moth killed itself." Awesome.
