So THAT'S where it went...

I gave Jared permission to get some gum a little while ago. Immediately upon opening the drawer where we store it, he FLIPPED OUT that all the gum was gone. Considering I'd just been in that drawer that morning and had plainly seen gum left in two separate packs, my reaction to his "freak out" moment, was to none-too-nicely tell him to open his eyes and LOOK (so I admit I'm not a perfect mom). When he didn't calm down right away, I walked over, and sure enough, two empty packs of gum, lots of empty wrappers tossed back in. There was only one logical explanations. CONNOR. Just then, the gum bandit himself rounded the corner with what was clearly several pieces of gum in his mouth. I guess we'll be finding a new place to store packs of gum!

*disclaimer: two empty packs does NOT mean that he actually chewed two full packs worth of gum. It means there were some remaining pieces in each pack and he chewed what was left of each pack!*

That is just LOVELY!! Thanks for sharing the gum. I was thinking I was going to see a pic of C with the wad of gum in his mouth, but NO all we get is the gross, slimy, yucky gum!

ha ha Betsy! I wasn't gonna risk him choking to death on the wad of gum while I ran for the camera, but figured I'd at least show the gum for the photographic evidence of how much he had (five pieces of Trident and two pieces of Extra; which he got ahold of while I was back changing the baby's diaper I was babysitting, adn refilling Connor's sippy cup of water and breaking up a fight between Jared and the little boy I'm also babysitting). LOL!

I had to laugh when I read that Jared flipped out when he opened the gum drawer and there wasn't any.
I used to throw myself on the kitchen floor and kick and yell when Granny's gum drawer was empty!

One more thing...That gum is like bite registration material.
If you found that gum laying around and nobody fessed up I could match the bite with the kid.
HA!
