Monkey's, kitchens, locks and cracks of dawn ...

We have a thief! My son likes to tell us how he is a big boy now. He believes he has the right to decide what he wants to eat for dinner ... fair enough ... but this mama ain't makin' more than one dinner per family per night now that we all have teeth.

So ... this particular 2 yr old going on 3 goes to bed with no dinner ( he happily takes this option) ... however he wakes in the morning ... STARVING.

Pete found him the first time ... with the chocolate sprinkles ... oh isn't that funny we said.

The second time it was a WHOLE family block of chocolate ... that's naughty kiddo (sigh)

Then it was the yoghurt ... not so bad ... except this particular boy is lactose intolerant.

So we got locks ... just baby safe locks hoping this is a phase
The fourth time it was the lolly jar (from next to the microwave - my eye level!)

Then it was the box of mini croissants ... and these two times he is even hiding behind the couch so we can't see him eating it if we walk into the room.

So now at night we have to make sure locks are closed, clear the benches, hide all the stools and pray he doesn't manage to find something to climb up high ... we have been leaving a banana on the bench ... little monkey

Hee hee, how funny and ingenius are kids!!! I know I shouldn't laugh but I've got a little boy the same age and he's the same, he can be found eating sausage rolls at 9am, and the other day had hepled himself to about 6 frubes-(yougurts in tubes, if you don't have them where you are)and he just said what's wrong mum??
Gotta love them, keep telling yourself it's a stage and it'll be different when they hit there teens!!

Have a great day
Emma :)

he he he. What a cheeky little bugger. Thanks for your message on my blog - I'm really happy with the way the apron and oven mitts turned out, although I don't think I'll be making any more mitts anytime soon. So hard to get the bias binding sewn onto a mitt of that size !!

Oh, that is hilarious! I walked into the living room after hanging out the washing the other day and saw my just-turned-3-year-old eating a bowl of ice cream which she had helped herself to.
Clever little monkeys!

What a cheeky poppet. Sounds like he is very, very clever too.
