Gumundrum



When Leah enters a room, it is usually at full speed and full volume. So when she approached me today slowly and with her head down, I knew something was up.

Sure enough, there was an entire wad of gum mashed into her bangs.





I figured the poor thing must be terrified to fess up. So, I took mercy and knelt down to her level.

"Leah, is there something you want to say?"

"Yes"

"What is it?"

"I need more gum."

Me and James laughed out loud reading this. When she comes to visit, I am going to give her all the gum in the world.

Taylor said...

That is just too funny!

Two things...

1. If her bangs were long enough, you could make her stand close to the freezer, so close in fact that her bangs are IN the freezer, to help with the ease of removal. I know this from PERSONAL experience. I've had a kid stand VERY close to the freezer to freeze off the gum! Not kidding, sadly! (She had verrrrrrrrrrrry long hair!)

2. Did your mom really say LOL??? I love that!!!

I want to adopt Leah. Ship her to North Carolina, and I'll get her a pet zebra from the Lazy 5 Ranch. The three of us can have a very happy life together.

Elise said...

I freaking LOVE that kid. She brings joy to my heart!

How precious, probably not to you though. You can't fault her on the honesty.

Jenny ESP said...

That's why I don't have bangs. Can't chew gum and expect it to stay out of those pesky bangs.

Leslie said...

That is so funny!

I love that no matter my mood, I can always open your blog and it will be even better in seconds! This picture is darling and deserves to be framed on your wall!

Lyndsi said...

Did she even know it ended up in her bangs...was she looking for it? This picture tells a thousand words, however, not the outcome I would've expected. She's hilarious!

Get with it and blog again already. Some of us need a Katie fix, okay?

P.S. I finally met your mother and father-in-law this weekend! We chatted about how fab you are.
