You are in for a real treat :)
Today I'm joining their blog carnival-True Story Tuesday
Last night, when I came in from running my support group I snuck into the kids rooms, as usual, to give them kisses.
When I kissed my Scout, he stirred and opened his eyes. Clearly I had awakened him. He gave me a drowsy smile and I gave him another kiss on the cheek and said goodnight.
His eyes closed again, readying to drift of.
I stood looking at my handsome boy for a moment.
Then I noticed he sort of smacked his lips in an odd way.
And did it again.
What is he doing?
"Scout, do you have something in you mouth?" I said, trying to awaken him.
"Scout, wake up. Do you have something in your mouth."
He opened his eyes, but struggled to keep them open.
Then it dawned on me...
"Do you have gum in your mouth?!"
Eyes half open, he reached into his mouth and pulled out a piece of gum.
"Scout, you didn't! You went to bed with gum in your mouth."
He rolled over and put it in the trashcan at his bedside and by the time he rolled over he was back to sleep.
"Scout, you could have choked on that..."
But, I could see there was no point in lecturing. He was out.
Fast forward to breakfast this morning:
Me-"Scout, I can hardly believe that you went to bed with gum in your mouth last night!"
Scout-"No I didn't"
Me stunned-"Scout, I kissed you last night and when you woke up you had gum in you mouth"
Scout-" I didn't put it there"
Me-"Princess, did you put gum in your brothers mouth after he fell asleep?"
Good laugh by princess and I
Scout-"Well, I don't know how it got there."
You know, he never did admit that he went to bed with gum in his mouth.
Oh, the joys of parenting...
