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
