I am a perpetual failure when it comes to hiding things. I’ve never been able to lie without having it written all over my face, and I have yet to come up with a really good secret hiding place. I have partnered with Sparkle® paper towels to share my mom confession – one of the more humorous and messy situations I have experienced as a parent.
You see, I have always had a real weakness when it comes to chocolate. I am the mom who always raided her children’s Trick-or-Treat bags and Easter baskets. I am the mom who kept a super secret stash of chocolate in her bedroom. Only, it wasn’t such a secret.
It might have been the chocolate stains on my pillow that first gave me away. Or the small pile of foil wrappers on the floor, next to my bed. I was a sleep eater. The (not so) subtle clues I left behind were clues that no child or family pet could resist.
It’s a messy world out there™. Sometimes you just have to clean up the mess, and laugh at life’s imperfections.
I quickly learned that there is no such thing as a good hiding place when you have kids. Children are like blood hounds when they think you are keeping something from them. They will out-sneak you at every turn. A while back I learned that one of my daughters had been lifting my car keys just before Christmas and sneaking out to the car in the middle of the night, to get a sneak peak of everyone’s Christmas gifts that I had ‘hidden’ in the trunk. She then used that information to get favors from her siblings. Kids are smart. And sneaky.
These days I have my chocolate habit better under control and have fewer chocolate faces to wash, but I still rely on Sparkle paper towels to clean up life’s every day little messes.
Some things you can just laugh at, and some things you’ll want to clean right up. Thankfully, Sparkle paper towels are just right for life’s everyday little messes.
