This morning I got ambitious and made cranberry muffins to go with breakfast. Benjamin thought they were the best breakfast ever. :) In fact, he thought they were so good that when I went upstairs, he decided to use the dishwasher to climb up to the counter to help himself to another. Now for breakfast, I broke his muffin up into bite size pieces like a good mother so he wouldn't choke. But apparently that is an unnecessary step. I left Benjamin playing happily while I ran upstairs for 5 minutes. All of the sudden, he got really quiet and I started wondering if he was OK. I quickly went down stairs and didn't see or hear him. Then I went in the kitchen and saw him sitting on the dishwasher happily finishing a muffin. He ate a whole muffin in about 5 minutes! Now how do you handle these situations? Obviously he is not supposed to climb on the dishwasher, let alone pull things off the counter. But when I came around the corner and saw him I burst out laughing before I could think. So I guess training time will have to come another day. For now, it's a funny story.
