I caught a cookie thief! She thought she was being sneaky. But I'm sneakier! Hee hee. What happened? Well, let me tell you.
I was doing the dishes when I noticed a pink blur out of the corner of my eye. It disappeared into the walk-in pantry. Hmmm, I thought. What could that be? I stepped out of the kitchen, pretending like I was going somewhere else. I hid behind the sofa and waited for the perpetrator to emmerge. A few minutes later, a certain long-haired individual wearing pink pajamas came out of the pantry. And in her hand was a package of Oreo cookies.
"Excuse me," I said. "Where do you think you're going with those?"
When the thief heard me, she bolted.
"You're not going anywhere," I said. "I see those Oreo cookies!"
She stopped and put the package behind her back. "What Oreo cookies?"
"The ones you're hiding. I can see what's behind your back."
She looked at me like I was crazy. "You can't see what's behind my back."
"Sure I can. It's called Mom Vision. Now put those cookies back. It's way too early to eat them, anyway!"
She hung her head and slowly walked back to the pantry. "Not fair! I'm going to hide these where you don't know where they are, and I'm going to eat them whenever I want."
Ha. That's what you think, kid!
Kids! When will they learn that they can never outwit their parents? ;)ReplyDelete
I don't think they ever learn!Delete
Haha.. busted. :) That's so funny, I imagine you hiding behind the sofa waiting for the cookie thief.ReplyDelete
I felt like a little kid! Oh wait, maybe I still am!Delete
DO kids really think they could outwit us, their mums? No Way Kiddo!ReplyDelete
I'll tell them you said so!Delete
I really enjoy how you write about your children, puts faith back into family life. Thank you.ReplyDelete

Mama sees all.ReplyDelete
Moms are like the toys in the Toy Story movie. Moms can see "every" thing. Poor kid....ReplyDelete
Hey, that's a good analogy!Delete
haha can never get away with it.ReplyDelete
Nope! Moms are all-knowing!Delete
Ha! Kids are so unaware of mom's superpowers!ReplyDelete
Yeah. Moms have an arsenol of superpowers!Delete
Those mean Oreos causing so much temptation!ReplyDelete
I know. Oreos are just so irresistable!Delete
Mine do the same thing, but with Little Debbies.ReplyDelete
LOL! I don't blame the kid for trying. Cookies are pretty tempting. ;)ReplyDelete
i am sure they will master it one day :)ReplyDelete
I hope not! :)Delete
I love how kids try to get away with the most obvious things.ReplyDelete
Isn't it funny?Delete
Even on the other side of the country, I'm pretty sure my Mom still practices Mom Vision on me.ReplyDelete
Haha! It's what moms do!Delete
