The other morning I noticed Carter had a small bag of sugarplums. A couple weeks ago we had gone to a candy store downtown to get some sugarplums for the boys' teachers and then we always get a little bag for ourselves. The teachers' gifts were already wrapped by the store and placed under our tree. I was a bit surprised that we still had some sugarplums left over when I saw Carter with them, but didn't really think more about it.
Later that day I found Noah snooping under the tree amongst the wrapped candy boxes. My eyes got wide as I realized that maybe he had actually opened one of the boxes of sugarplums meant for his teacher. There was one box missing and he confessed (after he made sure he wouldn't be in trouble for telling the truth.) I had a flashback to his other candy incident last year. He hid the contraband in Carter's bed. Already planting evidence.
I have all my Christmas shopping complete, but still need to wrap everything. I am kinda glad my laziness has paid off, so that we could have this heart to heart about not opening presents until you're supposed to. I joke about laziness. If only I could be lazy. That would be super.
I woke up today and had no idea what day it was. I really thought it was Friday and so Noah got a full practice spelling test from me before getting on the bus. Then I realized that his test is tomorrow. Well, he'll be all the more ready.
Oh, and I've got a new post up over at Close To Home.
