What Was The Non-Messy Answer?

My 4-year-old comes up to me with a small pepper packet and asks: Is this open?

I answer, No, and go about my business.

Hours later, I find this.

I can’t decide if my mistake was going about my business or if telling her the truth about it not being open. Probably both.

PS. Scott is on vacation so I’m not sure how much I’ll be posting here this week, but I am keeping up with #30daysofgratitude on my Facebook page. Here’s a sampler:

I’m grateful I’ve never accidentally ‘liked’ something while stalking frenemies and random friends of friends profiles on Facebook. #30daysofgratitude

I’m grateful my kids are asleep so I can steal their Halloween candy in peace. #30daysofgratitude

Alex Iwashyna went from a B.A. in philosophy to an M.D. to a SAHM, poet and writer by 30. She spends most of her writing time on, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.
