I thought I’d be all clever using the silverware compartment to hold the peppers. I mentioned it to him in the morning and I’m pretty sure he gave me a “That’s cool Mom.” and not in a sarcastic way but a cute 1st grader way.

So when I saw the peppers untouched I asked him why he didn’t eat them.

“What peppers?” he asked.

“These peppers! The ones I showed you this morning.”

“Oh, I didn’t see them there.”

Really? I mean… come on! He’s just as oblivious as the husband! lol

    In his defense I had to do a second take to see what he missed! They do look just like kid silverware in there. ☺ ☺ Reply

    That would be a GREAT defense IF I didn't take a moment to specifically point out that they were there. lol Reply

    Yup he's a boy. My husband can't find the milk in the frig unless it is in absolutely the same place. Reply
