Where to start. Well, first of all. Brenda and The Boys are allergy sufferers. We take medication daily for allergies. Dust, pollen, pet dander, blah, blah, blah. On top of that Matthew and I have asthma. So, we have take our meds every day. The boys take Claritin (A tiny little chewable purple pill). Well, they are supposed to take it. Alex does without fail. My oldest rule follower child! Thank you, AJ. Matthew on the other hand has different ideas. Schemes. And tricks, when it comes to the taking of his pill. He first displayed such trickery back in June of last year. See the link below to read about his first allergy pill scheme. I thought I give them the pill and they take it. Done. BUT no, if you read the link, it turns out that Matthew does not like to take the purple pill some days and so he gets rid of it. The first time as you read or will read by throwing it away. But ah ha he was caught! And punished! And his mom and dad thought that he would not do that again. Because we showed him! Turns out he showed us. AGAIN! Last week. Alex and KP were at work and school already. Matt slept in. When he woke up he ate breakfast and drank his chocolate milk (Matt for coffee). Afterwards, I said, "Its time to take your medicine." He followed me to my bathroom. I gave him the pills and he took them and walked quickly out of my room with the pills in hand. Hmmmm. He is up to something I thought. So, I whipped around the corner and he was running up the stairs. I called to him. "Matt!" No answer. "MAAAATT!!" No answer. This time as I am running and panting up the stairs, I say it again. "MATT!" This time a faint answer comes from his bathroom. "What?" I get to the bathroom and he hurries out. I ask him what he is doing and he shrugs his shoulders. I ask, "Did you take your medicine?!" He nods yes. I don't say it but, I don't believe him. Here is where Matthew is caught. See he does not know that I watch alllllllllot of forensic shows. And so I have a TV degree in forensic science. I ask him to open his mouth. I see no purple residue stuck to his teeth. See my forensic expertise tells me that if he had chewed the chewable alllergy pill than there should be some reminisce of the pill still in his mouth or teeth. He, he. I am so smart. Well, when I question him again this time he tells me by pointing his finger where the pill actually was. This is the part where I have no clue not even forensic science can help me figure out why and how he figured out to drop his pill so fast into the BATH TUB DRAIN!!! AHHHHHHHH. Yes! As you can clearly see in the pics. His pill. Its in there. He dumped it in the drain. SO now, I have to watch him eat the pill. Oh, and he is hating that. He does not want to be watched! Ha. Sorry, Matthew. You once again are busted. Like so many Matthew Moments before, I ask you kind folk....Where in the world does he come up with these things??? I can't make this stuff up. Seriously!
