Family Dynamics, Fiction/PoetrySherlock Mom April 7, 2014 /Only a white lie. Colored in, embellished. Harmless, really. She doesn’t need to know the extent of it.She asks questions with a poker face. She’s a pro. Her expressionless look signals I change my teenaged tactics, quickly.She always finds out.
I was that mom (mainly because I was that teenager). My daughter never got away with anything 😉

I didn’t get into much trouble because I had this mom. I watched the goings on with my older brother and decided it wasn’t worth it! (Some friends that didn’t know better thought I was just paranoid… the others knew exactly how it was 🙂 )

God, the mothers always know, don’t they?

Ha! Moms are the ultimate detectives. This is great!
Ha! I’m kind of a sherlock mom, myself.

My kids ask me how I always know and it is because I was much more mischievous than them.

Neat and tidy little tale with a crisp end. Good one.
Mom’s always know. They have eyes in the backs of their heads! Leastwise my mom did.
Loooove this! Especially: “Only a white lie. Colored in, embellished.” Great gargleblaster, Natalie!

He he he.. can’t fool mom, can you? 😉
Great! I don’t feel my detective skills are always up to the challenge, but I catch some stuff.

My mom always did and my wife does this now. It’s evil instinct.

I’m pretty sure my mum didn’t want to know. 🙂 I’m prepared to overlook quite a bit personally. I wonder if they know that I know?

So true, sort of like mom knows all of your reactions and when one is a little off – well you’re fibbing.
I hope I can be that mom. My mother was either really stupid, really gullible, or really neglectful. I never truly found out which.

They always do. But they have an advantage – they’ve had lots of time to learn your tells. 🙂
