My, she eats those burgers fast!

One night when we had hamburgers for dinner, my daughter ate two or three–a lot for such a young girl, I thought. She did, however, excuse herself to the bathroom more than once. I figured with all the ketchup, mustard and pickle relish on her fingers, she decided a napkin just wouldn’t do.

It wasn’t until the next day that I learned the true fate of those hamburgers. My daughter had indeed eaten the messy hamburger buns, but when I followed a trail of ants to the back of her bedroom closet, I discovered several beef patties hiding there. Since she clearly didn’t want to eat them when she was told to, the ants were taking care of it for her! -Paulette, mother of 2

  1. Reminds me of the time I found a pile of “Pop-Tart” edges under my son’s pillow…he said that was the dry part.. yes, ants were marching all over.. Kids, oh boy!!


  2. Ah she a crafty little girl! She probably was planning on playing with them later! HA Ha!. When my daughter was about that age I wouldn’t let her get down from the table until she took at least a couple of bites. So low and behold she did! So I excused her and praised her. Later that night there were her “bites” rolled into a ball in the living room!
