Tattle Tales

Julia and I woke up this morning and played with lincoln logs and matching puzzles and princess matching games.  Lately she has been wanting to tell us everything that is going on.  In particular all the things that Riley is doing to her that she doesn't like.  So our conversation goes like this:

Julia:  Riley took the book away!

Me:  Oh that's sad.  What did you do?

Julia:  I don't want to tell you...  can I tell you what Riley did?

Me:  Only if you share what you did.

Julia:  No.  That's ok...  can I tell Dad what Riley did?

Me:  Only if you share what you did.

Julia:  No.  That's ok.

She'll walk around and play and then come back to talk about it with Jeremy later on when he gets home.  He tells her the same things.  She doesn't ever want to share that she took the book first or whatever it was that happened.  It has definitely stopped the tattle taling.
