So I was upstairs taking a shower (what was I thinking?!). The boys were playing Lego and Abby was in her room. Nice and quiet. Nothing at all happening. When I got out of the shower, David and I went through some mail and then we all came downstairs.
Evidently, Abby quietly came downstairs before us, for she had found a small tin of almonds on the counter, and they were now poured on the table. “Who did this?” I looked at her.
“Abby did it.” she quickly volunteers. Well, at least she’s honest.
Grabbing the can, I ask her to help me clean them up- when I realize every. single. almond is wet, and completely devoid of salt. She had sucked on each almond, and deposited them in a neat pile.
What does one say to that? Anyone remember this? *sigh*

Little A does that all the time! We switched to the all natural almonds just so we could have some fresh ones ourselves. How funny.
You said “nice and quiet”. I laughed. Tracy, in my house, nice and quiet do not mix. It’s more like “quiet = naughty”. At least she was just mischievous (and cute!).
It seems like I remember doing that as a kid. I’m still a salt addict today.
Maybe you could turn them into almond paste and bake them in something? That would kill germs, right?
My son went through a whole pint of strawberries, taking only one bit of each, and laying them on the table. Luckily, DH thought to make fresh strawberry syrup.
Happy belated birthday present?
We still tease my sis-in-law about her butter-eating habits as a child. And I agree that “quiet” does not equal “nice”! I can’t count how many times I’ve been enjoying the silence only to suddenly think “Oh crap! What are they up to??” Almost always I find a mess.
