Technically speaking

My seven year old and my nine year old were fighting the other day. There was a growl, a thump, and the sound of the breath being knocked out of someone. When my oldest started crying, I pretty much surmised what happened.

It was confirmed with a tearful, “Mom, KJ pushed me down!”

Of course I reprimanded from two rooms away, “KJ, don’t push your sister down!”

“But I didn’t push her down!” she cried.

Irritated, I met that with, “Don’t tell me you didn’t do it because I heard the whole thing!”

“But MOM! I did not push her down,” she explained, “I pushed her, and she sort of fell forward. She did not fall down.”

So am I raising a lawyer or a potential president?
