Looks Can Be Deceiving

Neil has a theory that children who will be...ummm...a bit more 'naughty' are made by God to be especially adorable. In essence, the cuter the kid, the more you better watch out! Interestingly, I am beginning to think he may just be on to something with that theory.

I will never forget walking into the conference room in Wuhan, Hubei and seeing Sophie in person for the very first time. The first thing that Neil said was, "Uh-oh. She is REALLY cute. I think we may be in trouble!"

He was right.

So, fast forward to present day and I decide to take some candid shots of The Littles. Just as I SNAP my camera I catch Miss Naughty Pants in action. Check out her left hand. Yup, after polishing off a bag of mini-marshmallows, she proceeds to TOSS THE TRASH UP AND OVER THE COUCH! I had been finding random trash behind the couch, but I couldn't figure out where in the world it was coming from. Now I know!




I immediately say, "Ah-ha, Sophie! I CAUGHT YOU, and I have it all on film!" Livie begins cracking up (nothing makes a sibling happier than to see their sibling getting busted! LOL).


Ooops! Did I just throw the trash over and behind the couch?! Silly me!

Sophie picks up her trash...


...and throws it in the trash.


Good girl, Sophie!

Oh my! She is really cute! And I can see that she might be a handful. I see that you prescribe to Jolene's theory of "they're born this cute so they can get out of trouble for all they're going to do."

Yup, I shared that theory with Jolene the moment they brought Emma home! LOL It is true, it is true! :o)

Haha -Mary that look on Sophie's face is the same one I see on Cady most of the time. Little Minx's, we are all in trouble.
