Always Beware of the Silence

At Christmas time we fill every bowl or decoration with Hershey’s kisses.  The kids know that as long as they ask, they are welcome to munch on the occasional kiss.  It’s the only time of year we really go crazy on chocolate, and they have always been so good about it that I just don’t think twice about setting them out (well, there was one year we found Caroline surrounded by a pile of silver wrappers, but it WAS Christmas morning).   Apparently William is yet to grasp the “ask before” concept, though, because this is what I found after a few quiet minutes this morning.  As any parents of toddlers know, silence is a very bad omen indeed.  Needless to say, we headed out and spent an hour running this off at the playground today before naptime.

Bowl-o-Wrappers, not a bit of chocolate left

"Hey, mommy." "Hey, Will, uhh, you got a little something right there..."

In retrospect, I should have been better prepared.  Last year he tried to take the head off of our gingerbread man soap.  Allow me to present Exhibit A.  No, the gingerbread man does not have a big mouth, that is the mark left by William’s teeth last year.

Exhibit A - Incriminating Bite Marks

In defense of the little man, it is some yummy lookin’ soap.

    I just laughed so hard OUTLOUD at this. I don’t know which was funnier….the picture of the gingerbread man or the look William must have had on his face when he realized it was NOT chocolate he bit into!!!!

    He is so sweet, (before and after the candy) how can anyone be upset with that precious little one. I am so glad Will knew that this is the oppourtune time to just go for it. You know sometimes we have to do that, and no better time then with real chocolate or something that looks like chocolate. Good Job Will!
