Caught Red Handed
After dinner tonight Brent looked at me and said with excitement, "hey do you remember that Rocky Road ice cream we bought a few weeks ago?" I had forgotten but was certain that if there was ice cream in the freezer the kids would have eaten it all by now. They have those super sonic eyes and noses that know where and how to sniff out any and all treats then devour it all. Brent was sure there was Rocky Road ice cream in the freezer. I asked him if he had hid it deep in the freezer and he said no so I wasn't going to get my hopes up of it still being there. Besides how would we eat it without everyone knowing. Next thing I knew Brent shot me THE look he had found it!! We discussed quickly and quietly how to go about having some all to ourselves. We started out the front door and quickly we decided to hit the ground low and behind the tall flowers furthest from the house. We got settled and started to enjoy the Rocky Road ice cream then we heard the front door squeek open and heard a small voice, "mom???" We ducked down low and held very still (yes those night games of when we were young have paid off) He never found us. We were thrilled that we had gotten away with it!! No one found us! We visited for a few moments (heard every word without interruptions), laughed and dreamily looked into each others eyes. Yes there was even a stolen kiss or two. We were lost in the moment. Then it happened. Someone was instantly there! Brent was quick to hide the carton of ice cream and we were able to divert his attention back into the house with instruction not to tell anyone where we were. Knowing all to well before we knew it they were all inside the house in the boys room peeking out the window pointing, giggling and knocking. We were caught. Luckily no one likes Rocky Road.
