This is the first time for a lie of this magnitude. She is the picture of a "pleasure to have her in class" from her teachers from Kindergarten to now - (3rd grade). She is not lying at school that I know of. I keep in contact with her teacher since there have been some instances of her being bullied this year. We are working on that.
She is an only child. Both her dad and I have been together 16 years. (Married for 14). We had Hannah late in life - I was 39, and my husband was 38. Neither of us have been married before or had children before. We live in a small house, but in a great nieghborhood and school district. I'm wondering if she is somehow trying to get our attention? For gosh sakes, she gets a lot of attention!
Let me know what you think.
Thanks so much!
LOL The only thing she has ever said, is that she wishes for a sibling. Yeah right, I'm 47. Not going to happen. Then she says, "well, I could use an older sister"
Anyway, Thank you for your advice. I will sit her down tomorrow after school and follow your advice. I have recently lost my job, but the good thing is that I am here to pick her up from school, instead of "Adventure Club" which is after school. I think she is picking up a lot things there as well as at Recess.
