The kids have been getting up super early and going to bed a little later (darn you summertime sunshine). So today, by 8:30am the babies were a TRAIN WRECK!!! So we laid down on the couch for a little rest. We all fell asleep for about 10 minutes-just enough to energize them, but not enough to make them less crabby of course. I hear Annabelle say, "Hey Andrew- Mom's asleep, want a snack?". Instead of blowing my cover, I continued to keep my eyes closed. I hear Andrew get the barstool and drag it over to the fruit snacks, pull the canister across the counter, open it and pull our several packages of fruit snacks. Now remember, my eyes are closed, so I have no idea how many fruit snacks are actually being eaten. Annabelle decides to take her fruit snacks to the art table-"I wanna color. Do you wanna color? Mom's still sleeping, so I will have to get the stuff myself." I then hear the crashing of about 16 coloring books as they fall off the art table. Andrew- "Oh no Anbewl, not a good choice. Holy Cow! Want some fruit?" Annabelle- "Yes please, cantaloupe"-good to know they use their manners when they think I'm sleeping! I remember there is no cut melon, just a whole melon in the fridge. I now sink furthur down in the couch so I can supervise this while still looking "asleep". Andrew takes the stool from the fruit snacks to the fridge and gets the melon off the top shelf. Andrew- "Woah, be careful buddy!" He puts the fruit on the kitchen table, goes and gets a cutting board out of the drawer and a Cutco knife out of the knife block. He carefully chooses the best knife for the job, the pointy seraded one-great! He carries the knife, tip down mind you, to the table. Annabelle-" Let me help, I'm a better chef than you." Andrew- "No, I good cutting this Anbewl, watch me". He then cuts the melon right in two. SERIOUSLY!!!! Not exactly even pieces, but in two! Andrew- "Awesome! (takes a bite from half the melon). Takes the knife and cutting board to the sink. Andrew- " So delicious Anbewl, wanna have some Anbewl?" Annabelle- "No thanks, I don't like cantaloupe".
