After hours of tense interrogation and a polygraph, the truth has come out! Brynne broke the coffee pot!
Last night, after her and Kyndal went upstairs for the night, Kyndal continued the questioning and they came down for the confession. Apparently Brynne got the small bathroom stool, which wasn't tall enough, so got the three step stool. She climbed it and started to pour Eli a cup of coffee into his sippy cup. She splashed hot coffee onto her thumb and dropped the coffee pot. It shattered. She ran.
The interrogations lasted for 12 hours, but the suspect finally broke!
You know how you look into the eyes of your children and think, "Which one of you is going to be the one?" I think we have our answer.
We have apologized to Eli for accusing him of this crime.
Rick and I are avid watchers of "Lie to Me". If you haven't seen it, you should! After this experience we determined that we could have known the truth simply by watching their facial expressions. And, he stuck to his story to the letter. Hers began to change almost immediately. On that note, here's a parenting tip: Ask your child to tell you what happened in order. Then have them tell it to you backwards. Liars do not rehearse their story backward and can't put it in order! (We learned that on that show!)
Here's to a better day!
