More False Confessions

While I was prepping a raw turkey, I looked down and realized I was still wearing my wedding set. The raw turkey was sitting on the counter and I was about to remove the innards. I took off my rings and I put them on the counter. I was careful to make sure they were a safe distance from the sink and went on with turkey prep.

Hours later, I came back to clean up and discovered my engagement ring on the counter. “Oh yeah! I took my rings off!” I thought. I went to put them back on when I realized my wedding band was missing. We searched everywhere, but nothing has turned up. The ring was on a portion of the counter we seldom use aside from making coffee. We suspect children may be involved because Rose is O-B-S-E-S-S-E-D with talking about our wedding.

Almost every morning, Rose comes downstairs saying “Mommy! Daddy married you! You had a wedding! You wear a wedding ring!”

So you can see why she might be our prime suspect in the disappearance of my wedding ring.

Unfortunately, Rose is still making false confessions, so we have no idea whether or not she touched my ring or where it could be. No matter what you accuse Rose of, she will say she did it even if she had nothing to do with it.

Here is how a line of questioning goes with this kid when I am suspicious she might have done something wrong.

Me: Rose, did you take my wedding ring?

Rose: Yes.

Me: Where did you put it?

Rose: I don’t know.

Me: Rose, did you take my wedding ring?

Rose: No! Where is your wedding ring, Mommy? You lost it? You are sad?

Me: Rose, do you know where my wedding ring is?

Rose: Yes! It’s with my princesses!

It’s not.

So, Rose MIGHT have taken my wedding ring. Or it’s just lost. She might know exactly where it is. Or she may have nothing to do with any of it. I think if she DID take it, she doesn’t know where it is anymore because she’s well aware of how upset I am about my missing wedding ring. I think she’d tell me if she really knew where it was.

Or maybe not.
