Liar! Liar! Pants on Fire!

My little Mi-Mi is a big, fat liar.

Why?

I don't lie.

Tim doesn't lie.

CJ has not been caught in a lie. So I think: CJ does not lie.

But Mi-Mi? She has had the tendencies for a long time. But this incident, well, took the cake.

The other night, I was brushing my teeth, getting ready for night-night. Mi-Mi walks into the bathroom (when she should be asleep) and asks/tells me something. I noticed that she has a 3x3" cut in her hair...AKA "bangs".

I ask her: do you have bangs?? Who cut your hair?!

She says: it's not cut.

"I'm looking right at you, sweetie. Your hair is cut."

"No it's not."

"Yes it is."

"No, it's NOT."

"Did you cut your hair?"

"No. It's not cut."

"Did CJ cut your hair?!"

"It's not cut!"

So, I finally end the blatant lies and send her little, fat lying butt to bed. I come downstairs to explain the whole scenario, full of exasperation, to Tim.

Recently, CJ decided to cut her hair into bangs too. This was very very frustrating for me. Why on earth would you cut your own hair?

And because Mi-Mi does whatever CJ does, I figured she followed suit...or perhaps, the new stylist of the house, CJ, decided to do it.

So I was not happy about 1) they cut their own hair and 2) SHE BLATANTLY LIES TO ME WHEN I CAN SEE THE TRUTH!

What to do?

The first thing? Get them both to a salon and have their bangs cut properly.

The second thing? I have no fricking clue.

  1. Wow, i have no idea how you would handle that! If she would acknowledge the wrongdoing (cutting of hair, lying), then you can take appropriate steps (talking, shaming, whatever) and hope it gets through. But flat-out denial? That's a good one. If she keeps that up, she'll never do anything wrong.
