C Is For Cookie

Saturday morning, as I was leaving for the gym, I woke The Hubs up to let him know I was going, and also to say that the boys were awake upstairs. When I got home, Scarlett let it slip that she and Gavin had to "Wake Daddy up because Simon was stuck in the door..." Ummmm...exsqueeze me?


When I told Tom later the jig was up, and that Scarlett ratted him out, he admitted that yes, he may have been sleeping, and so perhaps missed the part of the morning where the boys swiped a bag of cookies from the pantry and threw them in the washing machine. It was apparently sometime after this that Simon, who was farting around where he shouldn't have been (i.e. - THE WASHING MACHINE) got stuck in the bi-fold doors that close in front of the laundry. Hence - Simon got stuck in the door.


I have no idea WHY they felt it was a good idea to put cookies through the delicates cycle. I suppose if I could figure that out, I would be (a) 3 years old, (b) crazy, (c) THE SMARTEST WOMAN IN THE WORLD, or (d) all of the above.


Later that same day, after lunch, Scarlett finished first, and I asked what she wanted for dessert. She said cookies, so I went to the pantry to get the package of Oreos, when this is what greeted me upon opening it:


No, your eyes do not deceive you, and YES - all the cream filling had been meticulously and carefully licked out of every. single. cookie in the package, whereupon, said cream-filling-lickers carefully placed the forlorn chocolate wafers back in the package. When I asked "WHO DID THIS????!!!" Simon and Gavin immediately (and quite proudly, I might add) answered, "WE DID!!" 

"Ummmm," I continued, "It's not something to be proud of, fellas," to which Simon answered, "I don't even LIKE the cream."

I think a solitary tear of pride trickled down my cheek when I realized that Simon SACRIFICED himself, eating all of the cream filling, so that others, who may also not like cream filling, wouldn't have to suffer through it.
