Magnuts the Mafioso....

Being schooled by a 3 year old. Yes.We.Were. One morning my husband could not find his keys. In desperation he said, "kids, please help me find my keys, finder gets a prize!" Keys were found and prize was given. Then two days later his keys disappeared again. He decided to offer another bribe to the finder of the keys, 30 seconds later a 3 year old Magnuts had them in hand. A few days passed and his company ID card came up missing. He asked the kids if they had seen it- Magnuts said, "Is there a prize?" This should have been a clue people-but desperation had clouded Rob's eyes. The pattern continued, crucial item missing, crazed father ripping apart house for it, reward offered, thing found. Then one day I watched Magnuts. He asked his father what he was looking for, inquired if there was to be a prize, then toddled off to the den-lifted a sofa cushion and retrieved the keys!!!!!!! The sneaky little bugger!!!! By this time he had a box full of ill gotten booty-prizes for finding all of the "lost" items!!!
