Unfortunate Turn of Events

Look what my kid unearthed from a closed box on a high counter and was frantically stuffing into her sugar-hole five minutes before naptime.
CAFFEINATED energy mints. She swallowed a few as I was trying desperately to get her to spit them out. I had numerous fingers in her mouth and I have the teeth marks to prove it. I was yelling at her about how these were BAD BAD BAD. She kept saying, "No. They're good." If she doesn't nap today because she just ingested the equivalent of 1/2 cup of coffee I am going to just drive myself to the nearest mental institution. And, don't bother coming to visit me. I'll be in a fetal position in the corner, rocking back and forth and moaning and I won't even recognize you.

It's Monday!! Becca, please save those for me - I sure could use a few caffeine candies right now. I bought a new energy drink after tasting a sample at Central Market, but I forgot I had it this morning! Coffee's not doing it today!

Okay, it is evening now, your loyal readers need to know...Did Becca nap??? Do we need to start a collection for your institution bills?

Good thing caffine generally has the opposite effect on kids :0)

Thank heaven it was only caffeine -- and not toilet bowl cleaner!

Too funny. I hope that she did nap. Ashlyn has only napped once over the past week. ONE NAP in SEVEN days! Not good.
