a note from the management

I just printed this note out, and I’m leaving it on the kitchen counter for the kids to find in the morning:

Who left an old ham & cheese sandwich on a hamburger bun in his or her backpack? Lola got it out and tried to eat it!

DO NOT LEAVE FOOD IN YOUR BACKPACKS!
ALL LUNCHES MADE SHOULD STAY IN THE FRIDGE UNTIL THE MORNING!
ALL LUNCHES MADE SHOULD BE EATEN AT SCHOOL!
DO NOT WASTE LUNCH MEAT!

Love,
Mommy

Lola is our 7 year old dachshund, and apparently she’s quite the hunter. As long as her prey is lunch meat, that is. She took the sandwich (which is in a ziploc bag) out of a backpack (which one, I don’t know, since they’re all by the door in the same spot) and brought it upstairs. She was dragging it under my bed to kill it off when I caught her.

The kids denied having the sandwich, but based on the sandwich itself, I think the culprit was Gracie. The girls are the only ones who eat ham, and Gracie is the only one who uses American cheese. Plus, the automatic school thingamabob called me yesterday and today to tell me she owes $2 for a lunch purchased on Tuesday…

You just can’t be sneaky with a super sleuth for a mom!

    I know what you mean about hunters! Heidi was addicted to canteloupe and would climb on top of the table to get it! I’ll bet Lola was upset she got busted.

    ha, I loved that!

    BUSTED!

    Gracie did that one time when Paul brought her out while he shopped. He went into another store to quickly pick up dog treats. He came back and she had found the roast beef, and pulled it out of the wrapper!
