She thinks she's so clever...

These days Skylee is becoming quite the con artist, ever changing her strategy. I've learned with her to never give her a drink with her food. If she had things her way she would be a on liquid only diet for life. She would rather drink milk, water, or juice all day, than eat food...maybe with an occasional fruit snack or chocolate treat mixed in there somewhere! She has been able to fool me a few times, only on her first attempt with a new way of getting her beverage. I catch on to 2 year old tricks pretty quick I guess? Recently her technique has changed again. "Can I have a snack and a drink?" is what I hear all day long, even 2 minutes after she has "a snack and a drink". So now she'll ask for a snack and a drink, but only to get the drink and not eat her snack. Tonight for dinner, she asked for a drink too, I told her when she finished her dinner THEN she could get a drink. So, I go in to my room to get Parker, and Skylee fed her food to the dog and tried to tell me that her food was "all gone, now I can have my drink!"...She thinks she's so sneaky! I just hope as a teenager she'll be just as obvious about her "sneaky" ways :)

A couple weeks ago, Skylee got into the office and made a mess with all my craft stuff, she knew she shouldn't have done that. She came out to the family room, acting as if she did nothing wrong. I had no idea what she had done, but needed to use the computer in there. On my way to the office, she starts running up to me yelling "Don't go in the office, don't go in the office!" as she pulled me away. Naturally, I go into the office and there was a disaster! She's always been a smart little cookie, but this time...not so much. I'm sure she'll learn to at least clean up the evidence later in life!

I think that you should just give her protein shakes for her meals;-)
