Day 1767 - Getting Sprung

Last night I screamed the house down ....

Why? Because I was caught doing something I wasn't supposed to be doing.  Or I should say, I was caught doing something I didn't want to be caught doing.  It was one of those things you know?  The things you do quietly and privately and out of sight of the kids?

Yep ... I was caught by my son putting his tooth in the bin and exchanging it for a $2 coin.

I squealed in terror and then went running down the other end of the house and back again (much to his complete shock). This wasn't a ploy to distract him from what I was doing ... It legitimately scared the shit out of me.

I'd been sprung!

Or had I?

It turns out the screaming and running may have actually overtaken the shock of being let in on our little lie.  Perhaps he didn't actually notice what I was doing.  I may have over reacted (ya think?!)

Who knows.  All I know is that he awoke to a $2 coin this morning and was happy with that. As for what I was doing in the kitchen last night .... nobody has said a thing.  However they haven't stopped talking about my screaming running fear frenzy ... and what a good scarer Darby is ... and how I may or may not have peed myself. 

Have you ever been sprung by your kids doing secret parental things?
