And Then, They Tried To Manipulate The System.

Oh it's true.

They're good, they're real good.

After I mapped out my rules for the Jars, and after they eagerly agreed, and right after we all went on our merry -jar-happy way...

They came up with a plan to foil my plan.

Oh you're cute, ladies, but mama knows what you're up to...


From upstairs I hear them chatting in the basement...

Ella - let's get all the toys back out, put them all over the floor, then clean them up and tell mom to come see how great it looks down here - then we'll get more candy in our jars!

Reese & Charlotte - Yea! Ok!!

Nice.

Ladies, ladies, ladies. Let me introduce myself - I'm Mom, have we met? :) You don't think I would buy that little plan, now do you?

Ella actually said, "how did you know that's what we were doing?"

Me: Because I'm the Mom, that's how.

Ella: So you know about everything we do?

Me: Yes (not really), remember that when you're a teenager - mom always knows.

I might have to crack down on my Jar rules, don't you think?? :)

Oh no!!!!!! Your girls look to sweet to be that conniving. ROFL!!

It's amazing how smart those little ones are. What a grand idea they had.

Mom's do know everything don't they.
