Where's the Macaroni?

I realize how unheatlhy a Macaroni and Cheese dinner can be with all of it's refined sugar and perservatives and whatever else they decide to put in there, it's basically anti-nutrition and I'de probably be better not eating anything at all..but sometimes like tonight, I just need a good old box of Mac N' cheese for dinner. I love the stuff! I even sent Devin on a special errand to pick up some at the store, but just now when I decided it's Mac N' cheese time... All 6 boxes(Food storage) Devin brought home were gone. I searched every cupboard and finally out of desperation I asked the 2 year old living in the house.. this usually gets me no where, but tonight he said: "dey In da COUCH!" Well duh of course where else?..I found 10 boxes of macaroni and cheese under the couch... story doesn't end there. As I was fishing out the boxes of macaroni Cache decided that a good place for the Cheerios was in the bathroom all over the floor and dumped most of the box. I told him he needed to pick up the cheerios or do a time out. With a smile he sat himself in time out. What now? So then I threatened a spank if he didn't pick them up. My mistake was putting this threat in the form of a question. Do you want a spank Cache? Again with a smile he says "Yep!" and comes over to me turns around and bends over... There are still cheerios on the floor and I will be cleaning them up after I put Cache to bed early, find a lock for the pantry and stop laughing!

That is one of the funniest things I have ever heard! Cache is so funny. I bet it is so hard to stay mad at him. Oh and I wanted to tell you that your pictures of the lake are beautiful! You must have such a nice camera! They look professional to me : )

Oh no! You have a smarty pants! That's my Isabel to a T. More often than not when I try to instruct or discipline her she has some witty come back or chooses her punishment just like Cache. I am usually dumbfounded and probably look like a slobbering fool trying to figure out how to respond to her. SO, if you figure out an effective method of smarty pants training give me a heads up! Until then, good luck to ya!
