She's A Funny Little Thang

Oh Niamh, as her Daddy would say, "She has tendencies." Tendencies toward what?, you ask. Well, she is a hoarder. I see in her future, boxes of cereal stuffed inside the microwave, cookie rolls shoved behind the couch cushions, her favorite trinkets (probably ceramic figurines or snow globes) not displayed but hidden in case someone should come and steal them. All of the above items were hidden under her pillow tonight. What ends up under her pillow each night is not necessarily her most prized possessions, just possessions. I don't know what she thinks will happen to them if she doesn't hide them in the night. How does one sleep on top of Shel Silverstein?

Pictured here are the candy wrappers I found in her extra closet in her room. This is another late night activity in which Niamh likes to partake. We can only hypothesize that she gets out of bed in the wee hours of the morning, climbs on the counter to the top shelf in the kitchen, grabs a handful of Halloween candy, sits in her dark little closet, and feasts.

The hoarding and the sneaking sugar are not behavior we are unaware of. All of this is just photo evidence of it. She has tendencies. What more can I say?

Is there something wrong with hiding in your closet and eating a snickers bar???
