Being a “pumpkin” (i.e. cuddling, hugging, kissing, etc.) will get you out of ever so much trouble, you can’t even believe the stuff I’ve done and have been forgiven for. I ate a whole pan of scones that grandma made one time (they were within my reach after all). I ate my neighbors chimichanga (again not my fault), he left it close to my nose. Those are just a couple of things I did a long time ago.
But I always am a “pumpkin”! Why: because I never know when the mood might strike, and I might get the urge to do something that I’m not supposed to, I know mom can’t get mad at her “little pumpkin”. I have perfected the “Art of Being a Pumpkin”…you should give it a try too!
