Fudge.

I jumped in the shower without giving it a second thought. I brought E to the bathroom floor where I knew she'd play with her toys and H sat reading in his room.

Ten minutes later when E and I walked down the hall, H was no longer in his room but instead in the kitchen with a face like this.

"What's on your face?" I asked him worried that I knew the answer to that question.

"Chocolate." He said. "Yum! Fudge!"

Fudge as in my most favorite Christmas treat of all time? The fudge I just made last night??

Indeed he got to one of the blocks with his little hands.

Will I ever learn my lesson? Incidentally this actually happened last year too, though I'm not certain of where I happened to be when he got into it. Is there anything this boy doesn't get into; baby powder, vaseline, markers, baby oil and FUDGE?

H could most likely tell that my blood pressure was rising, my patience was shot because then he said; "I love you, mama, you're the most beautiful mama ever."

So instead of getting mad, I joined him in having a piece of fudge too. Compliments and chocolate are surely the way to this mama's heart.

But believe me that fudge is now out of sight and more importantly out of H's reach.


**Last day to enter the Christmas ornament giveaway. A free, personalized beautiful ornament for you or someone you love.**

Oh how sweet. Sounds like he knows how to win his mommy over. :)

I hate it when my kids get into stuff like that, too!

Yum, fudge. I'll be happy to keep it for safe keeping! :)

Way to go with the moment though.

Mmmm, fudge.

My boy knows to compliment me when he is about to get in trouble too. Where do they learn that?!?!?

Will you share your recipe? I've never made fudge.

When I saw your tweet earlier, I knew there had to be a "post-fudge" photo. Sometimes you just have to stop and eat some chocolate.

Your son looks so cute with chocolate smudged on his face. Our boys did the same thing to the leftover chocolate cake from Sunday's birthday party. Of course, I probably ate more of it than they did.
