M&M catastrophe

I am in the process of potty training the girls, and M&Ms are the reward of choice. I have a candy jar (sealed) in the bathroom for when they go "pee pee in the potty". They only get them at that time.

I have a huge Sams bag of M&Ms in the freezer, and I felt like I needed a few one day. As I was getting the bag out, a TON of them spilled onto the floor. Luckily the dogs were locked in my bedroom.

It was time for me to get the girls up for nap and I thought they were going to enjoy this. I went in Leah's room and told her there were a bunch of M&Ms on the floor and I needed her help cleaning them up. OKAY! she said and quickly ran to the kitchen where she stared... in awe.

Hannah was next and I told her the same thing. "Ceem up Ceem up" she sang as she literally skipped to the kitchen where Leah was still standing in awe.

I had to give them bowls so they could pick up some candies and "clean". Two went in the bowls, then two their mouths.

Dont think I am a terrible mom here and let them eat their fill. I did go get the vacuum and got the rest up so they probably had about 10. But I think they were in heaven.

So cute! My girls would have been scooping those bad boys in their hand and eating M&M's BY the if your girls only ate 10 total...that's pretty good!
