The Case of the Missing Marshmallows

Someone's been eating the marshmallows.

But who? Certainly not me. Those fruity flavored ones are revolting.

Like most criminals, the mellow-snatchers have started to feel confident in their abilities, cocky even. And as a result, they've become sloppy.

Now before you jump to conclusions here, let's examine the facts. With only three children at home in the mornings, that narrows our suspect list down considerably.

At this point, I also feel it's safe to exclude the baby.

Unless her crawling abilities are far superior to what she's been letting on.

Of course, being my child and all it wouldn't surprise me. Not that I'm one to boast, but my crawling abilities are quite exceptional.

But for now, my suspect list has been whittled down to two main perpetrators.

Don't let the pink pony throw you off either. Jacob is well known for his inability to discriminate between "girl" and "boy" toys. A toy is a toy to him. End of story.

They both have a rather long rap sheets including: destruction of property, shoplifting from the pantry, assault with a stuffed penguin, and clogging the toilet with too much toilet paper.

Alayna is a well-renowned loner who often prefers to work solo. Sharing isn't her strong suit.

Jacob is known for not wanting to get his hands dirty. He has often been caught coercing a poor, unsuspecting brunette into doing all the dirty work so he can claim innocence when caught.

The scoundrel.

With both parties claiming innocence, the question remains, were they partners in crime? Or was it a one-toddler job? And if so, which one?

What's your conclusion?

I think they were in cahoots.


Stacy said...

Blame your husband. He's probably framing your kids.

Garden of Egan said...

They are too cute. It can't be either one. It's probably the person staring at you in the mirror!

Shaylee B said...

It was ME!

No, seriously. It couldn't have been either of those absolutely angelic faces! I'm with Stacy - it was probably your sweetheart. ;) :D

Thanks for the laughs, Serene! :)

Heather S said...

(ick.. those fruity marshmallows are disgusting!!) most likely you'll NEVER ever know. ahh, the suspense!
(I like Stacy's point.. could be your dear husband.. framing the kiddos) :)
if it were at our house, i'd know it was #4 immediately, because he's constantly putting things in baggies and leaving them everywhere.

Amber said...

Without further evidence, it's just too hard to decide. :)

I can't believe how BIG your kids are getting!

Mikki said...

You are so funny. I think it's the baby.

Mama Smith said...

It is the one who has the WORST TASTE in FOOD!

Garvin Smith said...

Spank them both!

Serene is my name, not my life! said...

Careful dad! People on here won't know you're joking! :)

mCat said...

My money is on your husband. And he's letting the kids take the fall for it

Valerie said...

I like when the kids like some snack that I hate. Then I'm not tempted to have some. And I don't like any marshmallows, but especially that kind. Maybe you'll have to set up a hidden camera to catch the culprit(s). :)

Jocelyn Christensen said...

ha ha ha ha ha....HA!

I came home from the grocery story and the marshmallow bag already had a hole in it...before I even put it in the cupboard. Their real quick!

Angel Day said...

I am going to have to go with.....Jacob. He was my first thought.

Sarah...I don't think Dad was joking :) haha

Doran & Jody said...

Did you check yourself in the mirror to see if you still have the cocoa mustache?

Charlotte said...

Obviously the pony has an insatiable taste for marshmallows. He went a little Toy Story on you.
