Isn't it amazing how quickly kids learn to work things to their advantage?
This morning before church Honey Daddy was attending a meeting and I was home with the boys. Eli was taking his morning nap, so Jonah was downstairs with me as I was getting ready. After a while Jonah asked me if he could have a fruit snack.
Fruit snacks are a bit of a treat at our house, since we don't buy them very often. Jonah was being a good boy, so I gave him a fruit snack.
When Honey Daddy came home, I left to go to choir practice.
When I got back we were hurriedly getting lunch and getting everything ready to go. I asked Honey Daddy, "Were the boys good while I was gone?"
He said, "Yeah, Jonah had me read some stories to him out of that big story book."
Me: "Let me guess, the boat story and stone soup?"
HD: "Yep. Then he asked me if he could have a fruit snack. He even showed me where they were in the pantry."
Me: "So you gave him a fruit snack?"
HD: "Yes, but I told him that he wouldn't get to have one during church today."
Me: "Well I hope not, because now he has had two packages already today!"
HD: "Oh. You gave him one earlier?"
Me: "Yep. I gave him one while you were gone."
We both had a good laugh about that. Can you believe our two-year-old has already figured out how to take advantage of his parents? We're doomed!
