May your soda always be fizzy and may your Doritos never be soggy.

Confessions of a 7 year old. (sorry mom) ;-)

When I was little my mom and dad told me I was not allowed to eat my father's Doritos or drink his Coca Cola because it would ruin my dinner and my teeth.

They used to buy the Coca-Cola by the suitcase full, so every now and then I would sneak one out of the fridge in the middle of the night and hide it under my bed. Sometimes I would even take two.

Eventually I had quite the stockpile of soda squirreled away. I would drink the sugary and caffeinated goodness while everyone else in the house were sleeping. Then I would sneak into the kitchen and steal the giant bag of chips. I would eat as many as I thought I could get away with without being noticed and then I would suck the cheese off more of them one chip at a time and carefully line them up on a plate to dry.

When I had my fill of nacho cheese goodness I would dump the cheeseless chips back into the bag and shake the bag to "recoat" the chips with the cheese from the other chips. Then I would put it back where I found it, no one the wiser.

True story.

So, the burning question is: Do you really know what your kids are doing while you're sleeping?

OMG Michelle, too funny. You are sneaky sneaky, I'll remember to decline on the doritos if I'm ever invited to your house. lol

jiminy cricket...you really went to great lengths there miss! I know what my daughter was doing this morning when I was trying to get a few extra winks in...opening up an art project that contained glue paint and ruining the whole thing, among other messes....so the moral of the story is, give up sleeping I guess...I'll get more done anyway~

Well, I have to admit, that's one I never suspected! No wonder the Doritos never seemed very tasty! I never cared much for them anyway! I prefer plain corn chips. & I was right about the teeth!

Now I don't feel so guilty!
