Russell was three. He was smart, kind, and very proud of his new baby sister, Megan.
But she wasn't big enough to play yet. Russell wished she would grow soon.
It was the week after Christmas, and Russell was playing with his presents. His favourite was a big, red choo choo train.
It looked just like a real train, and Russell imagined that he was the driver.
When his dad came into the room, he saw that the train was broken. "What happened?" He asked.
Russell didn't want to get into trouble, so he pointed at his baby sister. "Megan broke it!" He lied.
His mom heard the lie, too. "What happened?" she asked. Again, Russell blamed his sister. Mom and Dad couldn't believe their ears!
To make him tell the truth, Mom said to him, "Do you want me to punish your sister?" Russell didn't want his sister to cry, so he changed the story and blamed his Dad instead.
Mom could not believe what she was hearing! She had to get him to tell the truth! She had an idea ...
"Come closer," she told Russell. She put her ear on his chest and started listening to his heart.
