Like mother like daughter, I guess...

My little Gwenny bum loves candy! For the past couple weeks, every now and then, I see her eating candy and I'll ask her where she got it, and she'll say "I don't know". When her friends come over, they'll come to me with just one laughy taffy each (so as not to raise my suspicions to high) and ask me to open the candy for the girls. I'll ask again where she got the candy and she'll say, "I don't know". Unexplained, Gwen will be playing with a blue mouth, or I'll find candy wrappers in Gwen's favorite hiding spot (behind our leather chair in the family room). Where could she be getting all this candy? In my closet, I have a shelf that is mostly hidden with the shirts that are hanging above it. That is where I have my excess candy stash. You know the left over candy from Halloween, Christmas, Easter, etc. ONE TIME, I found that Gwen had brought a chair into my closet found the candy and had gotten it down. I quickly said that that wasn't for her and moved it up higher, where she COULDN'T get to it. But that was so long ago. And I saw that she only had a couple pieces in her hands when I caught her. Well one day, Ryan was going to were an outfit that required the wear of shoes that he hadn't worn in a while. When he went to put his foot in it, he couldn't because it was stuffed full of candy! So was the other, along with his soccer shoes and one other pair of shoes that he doesn't wear often! So my smart little girl must have thought ahead and when she had that candy down, loaded up and hid the candy in a place I wouldn't even think to look. Then carefully ate it very slowly so she wouldn't ever be caught with a bunch of candy on hand! I couldn't believe it. We had a pretty good laugh at our crafty little girl.
Here's my little squishiness who has become hat obsessed. Now of course I'm embarassed that you're seeing my dirty mirror, but it was too cute to pass up. He scoots around with this hat barely even letting him see, and if Gwen tries to take it off, he gets so upset.

Wow! That is such a 'sweet' story. She's one you should probably watch in the future... especially with that cute little 'you could never be mad at me' smile! Good luck!

that is hilarious! what a clever little girl. it also seems like she knew the shoes that ryan wouldn't wear very often.

oh my gosh!! you'd better brush her teeth good, cuz chances are, she has a little stash somewhere in her room as well. that's pretty smart though. she's definitely you.

She is seriously so smart! You will have to watch her as teenager, she is going to pull a fast one on you guys!!! So I guess what we put our parents through really does come back in the end. Haylee is so dramatic... and apparently my mom isn't as suprised by this as I am! Drake is so cute! I want to see some more scooting footage, as I can't see him in dance anymore! Addilyn is almost walking and gets so angry when she has to crawl... she can't wait to keep up with Haylee.
