4 Year Olds and GUM....A deadly combination
Ahhh...what a day. My 4 year olds have discovered gum (or "chewie" ...as they like to call it). They love it. They beg for it all day long. They are obsessed. Why in the world do children love gum so much??
In a moment of sheer insanity I gave in. I had a moment of false confidence when everything seemed to be going ok..and then it happened.
Culprit #2 comes in and states: Mom, I lost my gum. It fell out of my mouth and I don't know where it is. (BTW he then blamed it on his sister..how she made gum fall out of his mouth I will never know)
Ok, great. After 6000 questions of where, when, and how in a desperate bid to find chewie...it is still a missing fugitive. (See wanted poster..."chewie" is not going to get a way with this!) Chewie was last seen somewhere around our couch and/or carpeted area.
Not more than 1 minute later I get a big UHH OHH from culprit #1. "Momma, my gum is stuck in my dress."
I reluctantly look over and find gum literally stretched across the entire front of her dress. "Stuck" doesn't even begin to cover the destruction.
After 14 ice cubes, a frozen hand, and a still sticky dress I have given up.
Anyone else have some fun GUM stories?
