God made him do it

Jack came and told me that Ty had bit him.

Great... same song, verse 53.

So here we go again.

I take both of them to the bathroom. I show Ty where he bit Jack (on the chest) and tell him "We don't bite." He gets a little paddling.

I ask Jack why Ty bit him.

Jack: "I don't know."

Me: "Jack did you push him?" (I had seen Jack with his hand extended in Ty's direction, and Jack often pushes him. Those are my clues.)

Jack: "No."

Me: "Jack tell the truth. Did you push Ty?" (I didn't see him push, so I want to make sure I don't punish for something that didn't happen.)

Jack: "No."

Me: "Jack, why did Ty bite you?"

Jack: "I don't know."

Me: Getting slightly irritated that he won't fess up to it, and trying to find out the truth. "What made Ty bite you?"

Jack: His eyes darted up to mine and he looks me strait in the eye and says. "God!" Then a little evil grin creeps up on his face.

Me: Trying hard not to break into a smile, I tell him that it was definitely not God who made Ty bite him.

The little booger is getting smart.

Mom jokingly asked if I spanked him for blasphemy.
