Ppsshh … Who Needs A Recipe?

Today’s Social Moms Writing Prompt: What are the funniest things your kids have gotten away with?

Let’s see…Drama King occasionally gets away with something because he is a super sweet talker. He’s convinced all of us that he just HAS to have new art supplies even if we have something similar at home.

But I’d have to say the biggest thing the boys get away with all the time is…

Two young children standing in front of a counter full of condiments preparing to make themselves a "different" snack.

Drama King and Little T took out every condiment in our fridge along with a few other essential snack worthy items from the pantry to make a snack.


They were hungry.


They thought a sandwich sounded good.


They wanted something “different.”

Well, I cannot argue with that. I sometimes stare at the fridge and just want something “different’ to appear. They took the initiative to make that “different” item happen. They each made their own “different” item and ate it happily before heading off to bed that night.

Yes, I let them.

Yes, they made a mess.

Yes, they helped clean up the mess before eating.
