We have a unique sugar container in our house.
It is a glass bear with a metal twist top that has a tiny little spout for the sugar to be poured out. Unfortunately, this tiny little hole gets clogged with sugar clumps very easily, especially if the lid gets wet. I have cleaned it WAY too many times!
I like how it looks like he has a goatee in this picture (left).
And you can see the tiny sugar spout (on the right).
Today, while preparing to make my world famous pancakes, I grabbed the "sugar bear" and it was sticky all over! The lid was sugared shut and it was evident that someone had been playing with him*
*(I am assuming "it" is a "him" but there are certainly no distinguishing characteristics that would keep this from being a female sugar bear ... except maybe the shadow "goatee").
After a fairly long amount of silence from all of the children ... Catalina, my 4 year old, came forward to admit it was her.
These are excerpts from the conversation that followed:
Cat: I sowwy I touch you shooga beya.
Me: Why did you do it?
Cat: I was yookeen for a stwawbewwy.
Me: (stifled laughter) Did you find one?
Cat: (sad face) No!
Me: So what did you do then?
Cat: I jes put it in my mouf ... an' suck on it.
Me: (laughing uncontrollably)
Cat: Why you laffeen' ?! Wha' so funnee ?! I cute huh?!

That darn Cat has my number! :)
I made her promise to come and ask me for help if she ever finds a strawberry and wants sugar on it. I also made her promise not to touch my "shooga beya" anymore. She's so darn cute!
