Cookie Thief

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! 


  1. Kids! When will they learn that they can never outwit their parents? ;)

  2. Haha.. busted. :) That's so funny, I imagine you hiding behind the sofa waiting for the cookie thief.

    1. I felt like a little kid! Oh wait, maybe I still am!

  3. DO kids really think they could outwit us, their mums? No Way Kiddo!

  4. I really enjoy how you write about your children, puts faith back into family life. Thank you.


  5. Moms are like the toys in the Toy Story movie. Moms can see "every" thing. Poor kid....

  6. haha can never get away with it.

  7. Ha! Kids are so unaware of mom's superpowers!

  8. Those mean Oreos causing so much temptation!

  9. Mine do the same thing, but with Little Debbies.

  10. LOL! I don't blame the kid for trying. Cookies are pretty tempting. ;)

  11. i am sure they will master it one day :)

  12. I love how kids try to get away with the most obvious things.

  13. Even on the other side of the country, I'm pretty sure my Mom still practices Mom Vision on me.
