Savoring Sixlets

Having finished a trip of trick-or-treating at the zoo, Jovey wanted to hold her bag of candy in the back seat. That sounded innocent enough, and for sure, she couldn't break into the candy in the complete dark with little mobility, due to her car seat restraints. While driving along, we hear a sneaky, yet loud little girl exclaim ". . .mmmm. . .the green one is good!!!!" We looked at each other confused, then glanced toward the backseat where sure enough, Jovey was enjoying a green sixlet from a package she had sneakily opened during our return trip home. Now, we know that she was being sneaky, because there was complete quiet before the exclamation (as a friend of mine has said, never a good sign), but in her childish enthusiasm, she could express her pleasure no other way but to share it out loud with the rest of the car, therefore blowing her cover. We smiled, trying not to laugh too hard, and took the candy away, afraid she would choke on a gumball next. Oh, to be so excited over something as simple as a piece of candy again!

Ok Jovey, let us teach you something. If you want to sneak candy, it's a good idea to leave the vicinity of any parental figures (like under the bed, in a closet, or behind the couch). Then you give Stormy the wrapper to get rid of any evidence... Got it????

TOO CUTE! Love you Jovey Kay and your precocious ways... you can thank me in a few years for the free advice...
