Time: sometime between 1:00-3:00 am
Motive: unsupervised fun
All that work, and he only ate one piece of candy.
Okay, so here is the story. Saturday night Chico was wired and did not want to go to bed. By midnight I was done and Brent had fallen asleep while he was studying before that. I went to bed thinking he would just play with toys in his bed. That's what he normally does when he's not ready to sleep and he's supposed to be in bed.
I should mention that Chico watched me pack some gummy bears and starbursts into ziploc baggies before bed for church. I stored them, per his request, inside Mr. Potato Head... a.k.a. "The Egg" in our church bag, then went to bed.
As you can see from the pictures above, after I was asleep, Chico got into the church bag and attempted to open the ziploc bags. He couldn't open them the conventional way, so he got the scissors out of the drawer that he's not supposed to open. That didn't work out very well for him as you can see above. So next he resorted to stabbing the bag with a pencil. That seems to have worked for him because there was one open starburst wrapper sitting there. All that work, and he only ate one of them!
He loves drawing with Sharpies even though Mommy frowns (deeply frowns) upon it, and he must have gotten a thrill out of drawing with it unsupervised. We're just counting our lucky stars that it was only on paper and that he used pen instead of Sharpie on Brent's text book.
The overall damage could have been a lot worse. Thankfully it wasn't and we've been laughing about it all day.
