i really wish i had pictures for this post. to prove that i'm not lying. to show you the humor in what i'm about to tell you. but i don't. so just use your imagination.
let's see, it's been 8 days since Easter. which means yes, there are still plastic eggs laying around my house. most of them empty by now, i want to trash them all but i'll have to do it while the munchkins are asleep. they claim they want to "play" with them....i have yet to see this.
however, they have been used by a thoughtful little girl, a girl i've come to know and love with all my heart and who pushes me to my limits every single day.
i came home after the evening Easter service last Sunday and was told the kids had chicken nuggets for dinner, they ate well so they got to enjoy some Easter candy. good for them.
the next morning i see an Easter egg under the table, i pick it up, shake it, there's something left in it, let's see what it is.....oh, well that's gross, it's a piece of chicken nugget. i laugh a little to myself, i know who the culprit is and toss it in the trash.
another day passes, i'm looking through Easter eggs that are still in the Easter baskets and upon shaking one, realize there's something still in it. i open it and find....yep, you guessed it, another piece of chicken nugget. i laugh, a smaller amount this time, and toss it in the trash.
and yet another day passes and i see some lone Easter eggs near the back of the counter. one is a bigger egg and a smaller egg sits next to it. i open them and what do you think i find. about 4 more pieces of chicken nugget. someone did NOT eat all their dinner, someone MADE daddy believe they did. someone got candy and is laughing inside b/c she fooled us.
so it seems that i've got a little trickster on my hands. who is now, it seems, constantly trying to get one past mom and dad.
pray people....she's only 3 (well almost 4 but still). i'm sooooooooo in for it.
