Not Me

In our family circus children old enough to be left alone without a babysitter. Can find lots of interesting ways to have fun. And this makes for a happy house hold. But when parents return home, They can't help noticing something is different. It’s to quiet and the kids didn't meet them at the door. Act one starts like this. All right! All of you get in here right now! Who did this? No matter how many kids you have. You’ll always have one extra, the one you can't see. The one kids always blame and he answers to the name of (Not Me!) Your kids make it plain as the crayon writing on the living room wall. the house is a mess, the refrigerator is wide open, the pudding and Popsicle are gone. The dog is covered in shaving cream. Kids being kids can get in trouble In every conceivable way. As your kids stand in front of you, you can count the halos in the room. And so, you repeat the question I said who did this? They sound like angels. One at a time you hear your children innocently say not me. But as usual the first kid to speak up, knows who did it. You pull your little tattletale to the side, and pay no attention as they start to cry. Ratting out the little kid that you can't see. The one kids blame who answers to the name (Not Me!)
