Owen's always surprising me -- whether it be a new skill that he's mastered or a new word that he's learned to say. These little surprises make me smile and I'm more and more proud of him each day.
Today's little surprise left me SHOCKED! I had no words. My jaw dropped and my mind reeled.... how did he do that, I was 5 feet away? How can it take him 20 minutes to eat lunch, but only 1 minute to inhale an ENTIRE CUPCAKE???? Sneaky, sneaky, sneaky Owen!
Here he is.... Caught eating a cupcake!
Can you tell that he enjoyed it?
I was doing the dishes. He was playing in the kitchen. Normal routine stuff. I didn't even notice him walk out of the kitchen. In fact, the part that I noticed was how quiet he was. Suddenly, the silence filled the room and I knew he was up to something!
I called out, "Owen, whatcha doing?"
His muffled/mouth-filled reply, "mmwwmmwmw"
What a little stinker!
Here's where it gets nasty....
Yup- this is our trashcan. Do you see the chocolate spot on top, next to the milk? That's where the cupcake came from---- GAG, Yuck, EW
He opened the lid, grabbed the cupcake, and quietly walked his snack (or "nack" as he would say) to the table. At least he took it to the table, right?
After scrubbing chocolate frosting off the carpet, the table, the kid, and the chocolate ring around the tub.... I looked in the mirror to find chocolate frosting on my nose!
*He was an angel today. Great naps, ate all this meals, very helpful in the commissary, sweet as can be while we played at home.... maybe he'll get a cupcake for breakfast tomorrow. Yeah, right!
