Ugh.... I don't know where to start, it's about the simplest things.
She somehow got a bruise yesterday, I don't know how. I didn't realize it's was a bruise at first, it's pink, I thought it was a sunburn but now the overall patch of it makes me think bruise??? We live in CO so on occasion just walking to and from buildings or talking with a neighbor we get a tan or a burn (we're that white so I'm pretty anal about sunscreen). We're in the process of moving so she could have tripped on the stairs, slipped on wet floors, anything from playing with the little boys in our neighborhood to just falling, she's pretty much a boy in her activity level so it's not odd that she has a small bruise or two... I just usually know where they are from and they aren't on her face or this big (about 2 inches)... So I asked her how she got the bruise and she said she fell at Disneyland.
We haven't been to Disneyland so I asked again how she got the boo boo on her face and she said, "Daddy."
Before anyone bashes my husband, he WAS NOT around yesterday when she ended up getting the spot. He was at work.
I asked her again and told her I would not be mad, I just needed to know the truth, she said she didn't know. Okay, I can handle that as an answer. Maybe she really knows but I can't tell because she is lying about little things.
This morning it was sunflower butter, she was eating it from the jar, I asked what she was eating and she said nothing- that she was just drinking water. The smell was obvious though and the jar was unscrewed.
How do I deal with this? PLEASE HELP! I have no idea how to guide her in this.
