Weekend shenanigans and other highlights:
Image #1: The scene of the crime included a tray of blueberry muffins sitting on a cooled stove with their tops mysteriously and unevenly “shaved” and telltale crumbs strewn about. Nearby, a strategically placed kitchen stool. Main suspect: hungry three-year old who, when everyone else was too busy to help him, decided to take matters into his own hands (and tummy). Confession: received. Case closed for now, but stay on the lookout for ravenous teen, male sibling who didn’t get enough of the muffins. Possibly out for revenge, could be armed with rubberband slingshot with a dried pea on the end of it.
Image #2: Shortly after discovering topless muffins, mother opens the fridge to find a rubber fish bath toy next to the garlic, taco sauce and jar of hot fudge. Was it a case of the fish trying to escape, or was the fish a victim of foul play? Main suspect: three-year-old who thought the fish would taste better if it were refrigerated, or perhaps was looking for a hiding spot to keep it out of the hands of 5-year-old brother.
Image #3: Sunday, parents awake to the happy shrieks of a zeal-filled 5-year-old who has just spelled his first words (besides his name and a few other basics). Much to his parents’ dismay, the words were not, “I love you Mom and Dad.”
Never a dull moment, indeed!
