Oh my, was I ever in trouble. Far more for trying to put the blame on my sister than for the fairly harmless writing in chalk. I have apologized to my sister.

One time my granddaughter was caught shoplifting. I had to go pick her up. When we left the store, she was sobbing. I never said a word to her. When we got home I asked her if she was wondering why I didn't yell at her. My answer to her was, "because could you have felt any worse if I started to yell at you in public than you did when you saw me?" Of course her answer was "no'. She knew she had disappointed me. And that is what hurt her more than anything I could say to her. And I certainly wasn't going to berate her in the store in front of total strangers. I always tried to remember, "Children have feelings too."
If the pumpkins were in their possession, they stole them. Try telling a police offiicer differently.

When i was very small, I wanted some candy from the display when mother and I were checking out at the grocery. She did'nt want to buy it because it was of my teeth. Well, I lifted it while she was busy. I wasn't smart enough to wait until we got home and go to my room to eat and stuffed it in my mouth while she was putting the groceries in the car. Of course i got caught. She made me spit it out and marched me back in and made me apologize to the store manager. Yes, I was ashamed but when I was in my teens and some of my friends were 'experimenting' with shoplifting, I had no desire to join in. Apologizing as a little kid is a lot better than standing in front of a judge in criminal court.

I lifted the blanket and said "WHAT are you doing???" to which he replied "how did you know I was here?". Have I mentioned that he's our kid with the really high IQ? Book smart - life stupid.

I had two kids that were book smart. And with a smart and quick wit mouth. And I still can't win a battle of words with Spike. He ALWAYS has a quick comeback. The other one, Poo, just tilts his head and says, "Okay Ma." Then he rattles off some medical reason why I am the way I am. Can't win with him either. No wonder I feel like a loser some days.
