Who Stole the Cookie from the Cookie Jar?
It seems we have a cookie thief in the house.
This morning when I got up, I walked by the kids' room and peeked in. They were still peacefully sleeping. I did a double take at Aydan and saw that he was holding on to a half-eaten cookie. I know he didn't go to bed with it so he must have gotten up at some point and helped himself to a cookie from the kitchen. I just had to laugh! I should have got a picture of it; it was just too cute.
We have caught him several times lately trying to sneek into the kitchen after we put him to bed to grab something to eat. Usually we will hear him open his bedroom door and go get him and put him back to bed. This time, it was too late.
A while back, the thief struck again, only this time it was for for bananas. I had just bought a bundle of bananas that day. When I got up in the morning, I discovered that all of the bananas were gone! The evidence (all of the banana peels) was still on the floor.
We have learned that we need to keep all food up in the high cabinets otherwise its fair game for the Eating Machine. He can apparently climb onto the counter because he was able to reach the bananas and he can also open the refrigerator and help himself to whatever is in there.
Maybe we should consider getting a gate for the kitchen (or a door with a dead-bolt lock?)
What can I say, kid likes to eat!!
