Me: Bear, stop( As I notice out of the corner of my eye Bear walking a little oddly out the back door)
Bear: Mumble (he stops halfway out the door)
Me: What do you have in your mouth?
Bear: Mumble (Standing still)
Me: If you can’t speak clearly it’s not nothing, back up and let me see.
Bear: (Takes a couple steps backwards to reveal my tennis shoe.)
Me: Hmmm I guess I didn’t put them up last time (walking over to bear) let me have the shoe.
Bear: (Locks his jaws but eventually lets me have the shoe with no new holes.)
Me: Did you manage to get the other out in the backyard already?
Bear: Ummm no?
Me: That’s funny, I see it out in your favorite spot for toys.
Bear: Mom! I want to play with them.
Me: You’ll need to get a job first sweetie.
