Can’t Leave Her Alone For 2 Seconds!

Remember this photo where Baby Bug was caught sneaking a donut?

Well, today I went to the restroom and when I returned she was nowhere to be found. Then I noticed that the door to the pantry was ajar. When I opened it, this is what I found:

She had somehow gnawed through the top and was sucking all the juice out. This is the first time she’s ever had apple juice and judging from the 6 empty boxes around her, I guess it’s safe to say that she really likes it!


And no, I’m not starving my kids! ;-)

    George Washington said “I cannot tell a lie, I cut down the apple tree”

    Baby Bug said, “I cannot tell a lie, I chugged down all the apple juice.” (and besides, mom got it on digital so there’s no denying it.)

  15. Carey says:

    Very cute! Hopefully she didnt end up with a belly ache after all that juice. Thanks for sharing, your daughters are just so cute!

  16. Sparky Duck says:

    no, you are just trying to dehydrate your kids ;)

  17. Judy says:

    uhhhhh… SIX boxes of juice? Kailani, remember your post for the contest??? I hope you don’t turn out to have a repeat today!!! ;-)

  18. Lissete says:

    I know I’ve said it before, but I am so glad I check my blogs 1st thing in the morning. Your Baby Bug pics always brighten my day. She sure loves her yum yums! :)

  19. Lorri says:

    Uh, you’re not a first time mom, so you should know by now that you are not allowed to use the bathroom by yourself. Ever.

  20. Michelle says:

    I think that juice is like crack for kids or something, we just bought a case at Sam’s Club and my daughter is lovin’ it too!

  21. Mama Duck says:

    Ha, looks like she was taking lessons from my little guy! Too cute ;) .

  22. amy says:

    That picture is just too cute. Holy pantry too…you definitely aren’t starving your kids!!!!

  23. Janine @ Moving Mama says:

    My little guy is the same way with snacks – if he even hears a bag of something cracking open, he’s at your legs with sad eyes waiting for his handful!

  24. Renee says:

    I was just wondering how that tummy is doing?

  25. Jennifer says:

    Wow! That is amazing that she is gnawing into them. My Kyra gets them all out, but I don’ think she ever thought of biting into them. LOL….

    I love your theme here by the way. It is very nicely laid out. Wonderful design.

  26. Melissa says:

    I love that she has juice all over her sweet little sticky self! :D Looks like apple juice is the drink of champions, eh?

  27. NOLADawn says:

    LOL Kailani, they have these really neat new things called doorknob covers… you should look into them ;) We have them on both of our pantries!

  28. Twisted Cinderella says:

    Too cute! LOL

  29. donetta says:

    Oh life. Your wonderful to live it with humor. Ah Motherhood if they only came with automatic cleaner-uppers. She is so capable. She’s gonna keep you on your toes. She’ll be the one to meet her own needs!

  30. Pass the Torch says:

    Hehehe. Kids;)

    Very funny – for readers anyway! Maybe not so much for the mom that found her there!

  31. Carrie says:

    Awww soo cute! My daughter was like this when she was younger too. I couldn’t turn my head for one minute and she was gone!

    I LOVE your blog layout! :)

  32. Mary says:

    Sure…. sure you’re not! ;)

    Too cute! They are sneaky little boogers, aren’t they?

  33. Angela Giles Klocke says:

    Good thing it was just the juice and not the Metamucil – LOL!

  34. wendy says:

    That is so cute…and funny! Hope all that apple juice doesn’t hurt her tummy!

  35. Christine says:

    Yes, mine can be VERY , VERY, sneaky when it comes to juice or cookies. I’ll ask who ate the last cookie, and then see the trail of crumbs, leading to the culprit.
    She was thirsty and decided that she was a big girl and help herself. Ahhhhh…..She’s growing up! :)

    Very cute pictures.

  36. Holly Schwendiman says:

    Hee hee, so cute. They are resourceful little creatures aren’t they? LOL


  37. jenn says:

    That’s hilarious. I should say she liked it!!
    BTW – your pantry is so clean, mine is always a disaster!

  38. Mommy the Maid says:

    That is really funnny! Little Bear is always getting into the pantry too. That and the game closet.

  39. summershine says:

    LOL! That’s classic!!
    Did I tell you yet I have a niece named Kailani? I love the name!

  40. tiggerprr says:

    You and BB gave me and Ashlyn a good RL LOL today! :) Sooooo cute!

    I’m just picturing her gnawing on the top of the boxes!

  41. Heather L. says:

    Just be sure not to go peeking inside her diaper after that one without some kind of protective eyewear. Whoo! This kinda looks like a cartoonist’s version of a toddler bender. LOL! Too funny!

  42. Karen says:

    No wonder she’s the sweetest thing – all those boxes around her! I couldn’t stop smiling reading this one :) . She’s gonna be a heartbreaker!

  43. BeachMama says:

    How sweet is that? So did she put her own bib on too or did she already have it on?

    I know it only takes a minute for them to get out of control, I guess that is one more cupboard or closet that you have to lock up!

  44. Sheena says:

    Wow she was thiiiirtsy! So cute!

  45. groovyoldlady says:

    Oh my word. Save those pics FOREVER!

  46. Jenny says:

    Hahaha that’s adorable. Mine climbs the gate and goes for the pudding cups whenever he gets the chance.

  47. Romie says:

    Just getting back to the blogging world after my little sick thing and this brightened me up totally. Too precious!

  48. Carrie says:

    That is too cute, I love the 6 boxes on the floor around her, it was too good to hide the evidence!
    Hey, looking at your pantry reminded me to ask you something… Do you shop at Costco? if so, do you buy those cookie cracker things that have cornflakes in them? they come in a big clear jar. We bought them when we stayed at my grandmas apartment. They are the best things ever, besides manapua (my fave Hawaiin food!!!!) I’m wondering how to get some here!!

  1. [...] You come home from grocery shopping and place all the bags on the kitchen floor. You hear the cats fighting so you proceed to investigate. You then notice the computer and wonder if anyone sent you an email. After a while, Baby Bug comes strolling into the room chewing on an apple and carrying a book. How in the world did she get that apple? You sit with her to read the book. Thirty minutes later you decide to make lunch and head for the kitchen. What the heck? What are all these bags on the floor? OMG! You forgot to put the groceries away. So that’s how she got the apple. Thank goodness I didn’t buy ice cream or apple juice! [...]
