Passing the Buck

Our youngest daughter, Number 3, is the worst for trying to blame her evil deeds on her sisters. Here are some examples of how she does it.

ME: "Hey, Number 3, who took all the hot dogs out of the fridge and ate them in Number 1's bed?";
NUMBER3: "Number 2"

ME: "Why did you color all over the chair with that black marker?"
NUMBER3: "Number 1"

No explanations. No details. Just a name. Any name will do. The other girls do the same thing but nobody does it as effortlessly and as simply as good ole Number 3. Next thing you know she'll be blaming them for shitting in her diaper while she's having a nap.

Oh well, can't blame a kid for trying.
