Best Mom Ever

Monday, October 22, 2007

Would it be so terrible if I set my kids up for a crime they did not commit? Would I be such a bad mom if I lay awake in bed plotting out the most tiny details of my scheme?

I mean. If the child who were to take the fall was.. oh say, three, there isn't much a parent could do about it, right? and in fact, should I follow through on my nefarious doings, It would make a cute blogging story, provided I brainwashed who ever read this entry.

You see, my problem is simply bad planning. We went shopping last Saturday and one of the items on our list was Halloween Candy.

Little mini bite sizes of deliciousness, sitting in my pantry with not a care in the world.

What we neglected to also purchase was some candy to keep me from The Candy!

I was thinking that I could maybe sneak a few here and there, and just hide the wrappers under the baby's bed. Then, come the thirty first when we set everything up I am sure I would be able to act surprised that it is all gone.

The Husband and I would then embark on an amusing hunt for the culprit and giggle over the audacity of a three year old who is able to sneak The Candy away and hide the evidence from his parents.

Now. About that Brainwashing...

You are getting sleeepy, Very sleeepppyyy

Hehehe...You are so bad. I think it would be even more funny if Jittery Joe was doing the same thing all along, and neither of you realized it until Halloween!! LOL

That's exactly why I am waiting to buy our candy. We do, however, have leftover baby shower candy that was in the favor bags for the guests who RSVP'd BUT DIDN'T BOTHER SHOWING UP. What do they have to fret about anyway? It wasn't THEIR money that got wasted now was it.

Stupid teenage dumb asses.

Sorry 'bout that. I think I'm supposed to "start" today. That may be where that last comment came from.

I didn't bother buying candy and pretending I was going to let the trick-or-treaters eat it... I bought the less expensive family sized box of Whoppers and they are gone now... (I'm almost sure the resident kid got some too)
