Sneaky Sneaky

The other day the husbands brother stopped by to chit-chat for about five minutes or less.  The whole conversation between him, me, and the hubs was at my desk in the kitchen.  Then he said goodbye and left.  A few seconds later, L pointed out a stamp that had been stuck to the cabinet door.  Then we scanned the kitchen.  The buddy had stuck stamps randomly around the area.  Now, remember, both the hubs and I were in the SAME room while this took place and NEITHER of us saw anything.  There were stamps on the fridge, the dishwasher, other cabinet doors, the floor, the shelves, the microwave.... you get the idea.  Somewhere to the tune of forty dollars worth of stamps was wasted in plain sight in less than five minutes.  What are we going to do when they learn to be sneaky together?  
Yeah, we're doomed!

Oh that's too funny! That sounds like something either of my boys would do. Some days I hate to even use the bathroom while my toddler is awake for fear of what I'll come back to in a matter of being gone a minute.

I remember days like that...was so hard to convince tink that stamps were not stickers! I finally had to hide them.

I feel your pain! My oldest did the stamp bit one day in the car - that was the LAST time I ever put my purse on the back seat where he could reach it, but did I learn my lesson! Not only was I out an entire *new* book of stamps, but I had to scrape them off the carset, windows, door, you name it!

He didn't! I've been amazed by my twins super powers. And not just the ones where they ride around on scooters naked! :)

Oh,no! Were you able to scrape any off in one piece and still use them later. I could soooo see Luke doing that, well actually he would just try to eat them all.

No, we couldn't reuse any of them. The stickiness was pretty much gone after we scraped them off of everything.

Oh, I would have died freaking out. Thank goodness we do everything online--I hadn't thought of our stamps being at risk! :)

Oh no! Boys are just crazy, Dennis and Emeray have learned the trick of ganging up on Yasmine now, for weeks all I have heard is "They are XYZ to me!"
