Kyle and the truth haven't been on close terms lately. He was promised a deluxe version with the Tail Blazer the next time I caught him fibbing.
This morning he told me he was all ready to go early, and was using the time to play Pokemon, because he didn't have time to play with the new Shiny Gengar we got last night at the giveaway.
As we were ready to walk out the door, it turned out that 'he was ready' actually meant - except putting stuff in my back pack, brushing my teeth, and putting cat food down.
I helped him get ready, so we could be there on time, and I didn't say a thing about spankings, but he knows I always keep my promises.
Kyle's up in the tree, because he got too worried waiting for me. He can see my car coming up the street from there, and he was planning to run away, but he fell asleep waiting for me.
Now he and I have talked things out. I've told him that he did fib, so I'm keeping my word, but that if he comes down now, I won't take his DS or ground him to his room the rest of the day (for leaving the house without leaving me a note). He's still pretty worried about getting a deluxe, but he knows I'll play with him after dinner, if he's not grounded, so he'll come on down.
