1. After watching way-ay-ay too many scary movies while forcing the children to fold laundry my daughter says.."Mommy....I'm scared...." and I reply with a question "Why? Do you see dead people?"
2. On the trick or treat trail through the never ending subdivision I decide I am tired and want to be done. When I tell the girls that I want to turn around and go back they cry like little sissy babies and say they don't have enough candy yet. Always the problem solver, I tell them to switch jackets and hit up the houses again.
3. When the perfect one staunchly says no, she won't do it, I suddenly have a vision of her years later as the crabby librarian with the wart on her nose telling all the fun kids to shush up. I offer her a dollar and actually use the phrase "C'mon, you know you want to!"
4. When the only home owner who has a clue recognizes my little criminals I loudly state (as they shuffle back to me empty handed)..."And that girls....is what it feels like to get caught cheating...."
Some or all of the above may be true....you decide!
PS. Brooke- I wasn't born yesterday and I found your candy in the first place I looked for it!
