test of integrity

So...I was eating some chips, totally jonesing for some soda...

Me: Avery, go to our neighbor's house and steal some soda.

Avery: (after a longish pause) Then, you're going to have to give me something.

WHAT???? is what I felt, though I didn't let on.

I turned to Miles...

Me: Miles, go to our neighbor's house and steal some soda.

Miles: No. Soda is bad for you. And stealing is wrong.

Me: (high fiving Miles) Good answer.

This is Wonderful! I love it. What a way to know your kids. And, how well they know you!

Miles: 1
Avery: 0
Mommy: Still loses, no soda :(

If I was a really straight laced person, I'd quote Scripture to you (totally out of context, of course) - Jesus answered him, "It is also written: 'Do not put the Lord your God to the test.'[b]" Matthew 4:7.

Since I'm not, I'll chuckle, and move on :)
