Quarter-pint and the Christmas Chocolate...

Quarter-pint has recently discovered the resourcefulness of the kitchen chairs. He pushes one to the pantry and then climbs up to reach the "high" shelves (at least MUCH higher than he can normally reach. The only problem is we keep the treats on the "high" shelf-which I discovered today is now very much within his reach! As I was making lunch, he found the red and green M&Ms left over from Christmas (I obviously need to clean out the treat shelf!). I told him no, it was time for lunch. He hawked the zip lock bag out of the pantry-and it exploded on impact with the wood floor. He was in heaven! Lots of red and green M&Ms all over the floor. I let him get his fill for about 30 seconds before I picked him up to put him in his high chair. He didn't fight, so I knew he had a mouthful of chocolate goodness. As I clipped the buckle closed, he gagged a little-just enough so I could see in his little mouth. I was astonished not to see M&Ms, but an entire mini Reese's peanut butter cup-wrapper and all. He let me dig it out and then we unwrapped one together. Nothing like a little chocolate to begin lunch!

Dave would do the same thing for a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup.

Very cute...sounds like our boys would get into a lot of trouble together.

I am surprised about one thing. How do you keep candy in your house that long. Our Christmas candy was gone in a couple of days.
