The Confession

Yesterday on the way home from school my daughter was telling me about her day and how she was given two treats for being a good girl at school.
Then out of nowhere she tells me that she also had gotten a sucker the day before. And after we had gotten home that day she snuck it out of her back-pack and hid in her closet and ate it. Then proceeded to hide the wrapper and stick, under a bear in her room.

"You What!" And her reasoning for sneaking the sucker was because she was afraid I would make something for dinner she didn't like (hence she wouldn't eat all her dinner) and would not get to eat the sucker after dinner. (She is a VERY picky eater)

I was quite shocked that she would do such a thing. But she did confess to doing it as well, so I decided not to punish her. But explained how it is not OK to sneak food, or hide trash in her room. And she knew it was wrong.
Now I know why she wanted to play in her room when we got home that day. She was "playing" quietly so I didn't question it. Now I know why....
I am afraid of the day she becomes a teenager. My husband wants to lock her in her room until she's 30. LOL.
