Devious already?!

Scarlet, Rhode and I made our way to Walmart yesterday to pick up the essentials. While we were checking out, I was separating my items into different piles (had to get some stuff for primary) and wasn't paying all that much attention to Scarlet. She usually spends her time checking out all the travel size stuff they have for sale at the check out counter. When I finally look down at her, I notice she has a candy in her hand... and a blue mouth.


Yeah, she had gotten one of those 'baby bottle' candies open and was sucking on it. So then I had to buy it, there's a wasted buck, and I threw it in my purse after letting her know she could not have it.


I got home, unloaded children and groceries, and fed my starving newborn. Scarlet was playing happily, but then I lost track of her. I noticed the downstairs bathroom door was shut, which is very unusual. Whenever she shuts doors she instantly yells for me to help her open it. Plus, she isn't one to play in the bathroom in the first place. So I go over and open the door to catch my 19 month old daughter with an even bluer mouth and a look that said 'uh oh, she caught me'. Not only did she find the candy but she went and hid so I wouldn't catch her! I really thought I had at least another year or two until she figured out stuff like that! How did she get to be so mischievous already??
