Hallee had ripped off the tags so we would have to keep it. Little did she know that would not be the case. I sent her to her room while I could finish unloading and cool down a little before we had a serious talk about stealing and being honest. Hallee cried and felt bad- but she said some really funny things: Mom, "How did you get that home?" Hallee, "I sneaked it in my coat. Nobody even saw me! (with a smile)" Mom, "We can't take things that aren't ours." Hallee, "But I did ask first." When Jason got home that night, he took her back to the store. Hallee apologized and gave the pink poodle back. Hopefully, this will be the first and last time we have to teach that lesson.
