So yesterday afternoon I came home from work and noticed that $20 was missing from our kitchen counter.
Since my daughter was the only one home I asked her if she knew what happened to it. When she immediately dropped her head to avoid looking me in the eyes I knew right away she had something to do with it. Then when I pressed her about it, she eventually confessed to taking the money.
Right away I started to lay into her about trust and how I didn't appreciate that she was trying to get away with taking money from us. It was then that she finally piped up and said, "Dad, I borrowed that money so I could buy you a birthday present because I don't get my next paper route paycheck until next week. I just haven't had time to tell Mom because she's not home from work yet."
I hope she bought me a picture frame, because I have the perfect self portrait to put in it.
