Naughty Little Monkey..

Scott with fishes blog

One of Scott’s favorite things to do is to go to the pantry and bring me all sorts of snacks to eat. Unfortunately, my easy access shelf of cold cereal, pretzels, chips, and goldfish for the older kids also becomes the easy access shelf for my little monkey too. He will bring me the big carton of goldfish, grunt and grunt until I get out a handful and put it on the bench for him, and then toddle off happy as can be.

Well, evidently I am not the best listening mom and wasn’t timely enough in listening to his pleas for a bedtime snack, so he has decided that he needed to take matters into his own hands. He took out the fishes, climbed up on the table with the whole box, and continued to turn the box completely upside-down and unload the entire new, full, box. I turned to look and all I could see was hundreds of little orange fishes pouring out and quickly filling my kitchen table. Though I was impressed with the actual quantity of goldfish that do come in a large box, my first thought was actually ..where in the world is my camera at a time like this! All hope of actually stopping the pouring was already gone from my mind. I needed to catch this picture with the fishes in mid stride! I ran for my camera knowing all the excitement would too soon be over, and happened to snap a couple pictures before he started crushing all of them.

I think it’s time for this little monkey to head to bed! After a quick snack of course. Oh, and helping mommy put the fishes all back in the box.
