So as I was cleaning on the counters, sink, appliances and such, I saw the coffee machine sitting there taking up space. You see, we have an espresso machine, which I use ritualistically every morning. I was sure we made a pot of coffee when people came over a couple months back and never put back in storage.
However, before moving it to storage I needed to clean it, which would entail checking the filter basket to ensure a science project wasn't brewing on a forgotten pile of coffee grounds.
Now enter culprit monkey pants into the story.
As I opened the lid, I was surprised to see something completely opposite of grounds. But what I saw made me chuckle and smile, as I remembered Veronica helping me in the kitchen to make some food the previous week. I also recalled Veronica touching the toaster and checking out the safety of the buttons on these gadgets. I also remembered there being some mini muffin liners sitting on the counter, which obviously makes a 2 1/2 year old think they need to be put somewhere safe, like a coffee filter basket.
