Defensive much?

Me:  “Do you guys want grapes with your lunch?”

Mabel:  “There aren’t any left.  At least, there’s no bag of grapes in the fridge.”

Me:  [Jaw drops open with surprise–grapes were just purchased yesterday.]

Mabel:  “There were still grapes left when I went to bed last night!  You and Dad must have eaten them all.  Hypocrite!”

Me:  “I didn’t eat any.”

    This is why I don’t teach my kids words like “hypocrite”.

    Yeah, I tried to keep that one from her. I did deliberately teach her what “OCD tendencies” meant, then forgot I had until I noticed it’s part of her daily vocabulary (to explain things like how she likes to keep her cousins’ play kitchen in perfect order. Her mother’s real kitchen is a whole ‘nother story.)
