In our Trenches, we keep gum and candy high out of reach in a kitchen cabinet. Only to be doled out by an adult on special occasions.
*Ahem* In theory, anyway:
(I have no idea how 4 year old Baby shimmied up there. There was not any sort of chair or stepstool in sight. I told you he's part monkey!)
He, of course, had no idea that I was lurking around (and snapping pictures). Lest I scare him and he fall backwards, I let him continue to shovel THREE entire pieces of gum in his mouth at once can you say choking hazard OMG his mischievous ways.
It actually ended up being a win-win for both of us.
