Secret Agent Younger Daughter

Saturday my oldest daughter was on the phone with her boyfriend. Then she turned around and called one her girl friends. She was trying to get everything in order for the first day of school on Monday.

This is no big deal, her being on the phone. I have come to accept the fact that my oldest daughter now has two new body parts, a phone in her left ear and a MP3 player in her right ear. Sometimes at the same time!

She finally disconnected her left ear and we went on about our day. Every once in awhile I would ask her a question like “So are you and your boyfriend going to meet outside before school starts?” She would answer “Yeah, I think so.” Then I asked her, “What is your friend wearing to school?” Her reply was “She doesn’t know yet.” 

Every time I asked my oldest daughter a question my youngest daughter would start to chuckle. I knew that little chuckle. It was the evil, I am up to something chuckle! I pulled my youngest daughter to the side and I point blank asked her “You know something, what is it?” Then she proceeded to tell me exactly what my oldest daughter’s friend was going to wear to school on Monday and that her boyfriend was going to meet her outside by the flagpole before school started.

Hmmm… my mind started to wonder, just how does this cute little angel know all of this information? AHA, the light bulb went on! My cute little angel with the evil chuckle has been listening to my oldest daughter’s phone calls!

Now I have a dilemma, do I punish my younger daughter for eavesdropping or do I use her as a secret agent?!

(For the record I did punish her for listening in on her sister’s phone calls, but it would have been great to use her as a spy!)

  1. Eee gads, I love the spy idea!! To bad we have to act like adults. Little sis shouldn’t be listening. Or if she is, should act like she wasn’t. Too funny.

    It was tempting to use her for evil, but I had to do the Mature thing!

    Thats something my son would do to my daughter… My youngest daughter (at this point anyway) wouldn’t cross her sister like that.. (not yet) but my son.. Oh yeah he’d do it and have no problem with it..

    Ya have to watch out for those sneaky ones! What makes it hard for me is I was just like my little one! Some days she just plain makes me proud and then I have to punish her! 🙂
