Last night Brandon was eating dinner midway through he declared he was full. As he was getting down he looked at us and said,
"Can I have a snack now?"
Rob and I laughed and explained if he was full he woudn’t have room for a snack. His response was,
"No I’m just full of dinner, I’m not full of snack though."
We asked him what he wanted and he replied,
"Marshmallows & chocolate."
So we told him if he ate his dinner he could have a snack. He got back in his chair and finished eating. When I saw he only had about three bites left I went in the kitchen and grabbed cocoa crispies, marshmallows, chocolate chips, marshmallow fluff and sprinkles. I was gonna create me some SNACK! Not long after Brandon walks in the kitchen. I was so proud of him for finishing his dinner. But then I look down and see he is about to throw his napkin away. This struck me as odd because in three years he has never ever thrown away his napkin. Put his bowl in the sink, YES, throw away a napkin NO! Here is what happened next.
Me: (noticing his napkin is also in a super tight little ball "Brandon whats in your napkin?"
Brandon: "Nut ting"
Me: Brandon let me see it"
Brandon" NO (runs)
Me: "Brandon let me see whats in there"
So I chase him, pry the napkin out of his hand and open it up to reveal his last two bites.
That little stinker was really going to throw his damn dinner away in his napkin. Now. I know my husband says he did this when he was little. I never did, so I honestly don’t know how you learn that. Now I am curious to find out where exactly he learned that, or did he really just sit there and think, "gee I’m just going to hide this taco in my napkin and mom will never know?"
