My Little Hoarder

     Yesterday I was giving Declan those honey wheat pretzel sticks, while I was cleaning and he kept coming back for more, I thought wow he must be eating these really fast since he kept coming back every couple minutes.  Then later I see him pull three pretzels out from in between the couch cushions to eat. I thought wow, now that makes sense as to why they are going so fast, and I checked between the cushions to make sure there weren't anymore. I thought I got them all, but this morning while I was sitting on the couch he just pulled out another one and started eating it.
     See these are the reasons why it is so hard to keep a clean house, because even when you think it's clean you have little one stuffing things in weird places. I remember when I was younger and at my best friend's house for dinner whenever her dad would feed us fish sticks we would throw them behind the stove or the radiator  when we he wasn't looking. I often wonder if he ever found those or if it ever started to smell and he wondered why. I now feel bad about that, and can only imagine the things my kids will do as they get older. I know this is just the beginning.


  1. I remember as a young girl hiding a big piece of juicy steak under my pillow. I was so sad when bedtime came and I found only a big juicy grease mark, as the dog had found that steak. I can only image what my mom thought when she washed my sheets!

    I found a library book and a toy truck in the refrigerator yesterday--safe keeping spot, I guess!

  9. Ahh, my Lucas does that all the time! The cabinet on the entertainment stand is a favorite, as are the seats of his ride on toys. Found a matchbox car in the silverware drawer yesterday too. Too much!
