Always Hide the Evidence.

Munchkin has been doing some really funny things lately. Things that she shouldn't be doing, but it's so cute and funny that I have a hard time keeping a straight face while getting on to her.

Yesterday while I was folding laundry I was going back and forth from the closet in our bathroom, to the clothes I had folded on the bed. Munchkin was running around playing, "helping" and talking my ear off. I went to hang a few things in the closet, came back and she was gone. I put some more clothes away but could hear something coming from under my bed. I did a quick glance around and noticed a big bag of M&M's sitting on the night stand. Wondering what she would do when I walked off, I faked another trip to the closet and stood where I could still see her. After she felt confidant that I was safely out of sight, she emerged from under the bed, grabbed a handful from the big bag of candy, and started her retreat back to her cozy little underworld. About that time we locked eyes, and she smiled and said simply "What are you doing here?"

"What am I doing here? What are you doing there?"

"Well um, actually I'm just eating some M & M's"

"I can see that! Who told you it was ok to get the M & M's"

"Well, I think Ernie said I could"

Then? She crawled back under the bed.

All I could do was laugh at how matter of fact she was, and how if she would have only taken the bag under the bed, I would have been none the wiser.

One day she will learn and I will call myself lucky if it's just a bag of M & M's she's trying to hide.
