I am really curious about other's opinions on this scenario...Okay, here it goes. We buy bottled water at the house for everyone to drink. SO gets really irritated by 1/2 drank water bottles laying around and no one claiming them because it is a waste. I obviously agree. We started making the kids write their initials on the bottles because of course they never admit which one did it. We seem to go through water really fast when SD is there. I don't care if she is drinking the water that is why we have it but I thought it was a bit odd that they seemed to go so quickly when she was there. SO is constantly on my BS when he opens one and leaves another without finishing his previous one. I am okay with him getting on BS about this because I agree. We usually put the one he didn't finish back in the fridge and make him drink it when he is ready for another one. Well anytime there is a mystery bottle left out that no one put initials on SD makes a point to say it isn't hers and she drinks all hers (IMO this is her way of proclaiming she is better than my son and wouldn't do it). I could be wrong in my assumption but since she is constantly trying to compete with my son on everything that is how I feel about her saying that.
Anyways, the other day I lost my CC and I was searching EVERYWHERE for it, I remembered that SD had stolen my mascara before and put it in her top drawer of her dresser. I really didn't think that she would take my CC but took a glimpse in her top drawer anyways. The CC was definitely not in her dresser but there was a graveyard of 1/2 drank waters...at least 7 of them that she was hiding in there. SD barely ever gets reprimanded, we aren't abusive in any way, so I cannot figure out what her reasoning was for hiding them. Of course when SO confronted her about it she had no excuse/reason either. The only thing we would have done is told her to drink them and not be wasteful. It is just bizarre IMO but she does a lot of weird things. I just want to see what other SMs think about this. I kind of think she may have been doing that to keep up her "I'm the good kid and BS is the bad kid image" but it was just water. Not like my kid got in severe trouble when he didn't drink the whole water. He just had to drink it the next time he wanted one. SO made her combine them and drink them which leads me to the other weird part. She chose to combine them all and drink all 3 that it turned into before I got home. Why before I got home? Did SO let her slip with this crap too and really empty them and not make her drink them?!? I sure the hell hope not...just to irritate me?!? A mental problem?!?! To get to me?!?! I don't see how she would think that would get to me though...any thoughts on this matter are appreciated!
I should also note that she is always sneaky with stuff at our house for some reason. Another example - she made a mess with her slime, cleaned it up with my clean bath towels and then shoved them back into the clean pile, why?!?! Why not just put them in the hamper?!?! Of course I knew it was her since it was blue slime and she was the only one with blue slime! The first item on her Christmas list was a trash can with a lid for her room (she is 10). I immediately found that request to be suspect....but not guilty daddeetz! What 10 year old asks for that for Christmas?!?!
