Who stole the cookies from the cookie jar?


For years, I have had an enamel bread box in which I keep all of the food I want to remain out of the eye-shot of my children. What they can’t see, they don’t want and the Twizzlers, cookies, marshmallows and other crap remain untouched. Never have they thought to grab a chair, push it over and make themselves at home with the goodies the box holds.

Never, that is, until… the third child came along:


Oh, the things he’s bound to teach them…

    WOW! What is it about #3? Mine can not be trusted. In his 17 months of life, he’s already learned things that have taken them years to accomplish. It’s kinda amazing, really.

      It really is amazing. He has figured out how to put things in the microwave and cook them, turn on the sink and soak the kitchen and break 4 bowls in 3 seconds. He’s going to give me a heart attack.

    See how dumb we mommies can be. My #2 is doing stuff at 2 that her older brother didn’t figure out at 4.

    My #3 is the same way. He can sniff anything out. No one can hide anything from him. He even finds big sisters stash. Which is not fun!
