Sneaky, Sneaky

This morning as I was getting ready for work, my lovely daughter snuck into my bedroom and shut the door. When I called to her and asked what she was doing, there was no response, no opening of the door, just silence. I naturally figured she was playing "Come Get Me" (her version of tag meets hide 'n seek).

When I went to open my bedroom door and "get her" she was blocking the entrance with her body. When I asked her to let me in she looked at me out of the corner of her eye (giving me a full profile shot of her face) and there it was, red lip gloss all over her lips, nose, and chin. When I demanded she let me in MY room again she backed away slowly and broke into hysterical crying.

Instinctively she must of thought she was doing something wrong and thus when I caught her became upset at the prospect of being in trouble. I tried to consul her and comfort her, but she just kept sobbing. Even after I informed her that the lip gloss she was playing with was HERS!!!!! I had to hold in my laughter because there was never even the need to be sneaky, HA!

I am sure that is just the first of many sneaky episodes I will encounter from my little Princess:)


  1. Haha! You should ask Brandon about the time that Darian covered herself in sharpies. This reminded me of that.

  2. Awww. poor baby. I know just how she feels. I remember the Christmas play my big sister was in. I was 3 or 4. After the play was over I crept up on the stage to peek into the manger because I wanted to see baby Jesus. There were 2 sticks in the thing, & it was like a canvas stool. I fell down when I looked at it. I swear I didn't even touch it, but 2 bigger kids told me I was in big trouble, & I started to cry. I still remember how I felt. My sister hugged me though & told me it was OK.

    I wish I could give you all hugs too!Love you all.
