When I got a little older she would get a little more testy when I reached for her bag but still I knew what was in there. So now here's Chunks with the same thinking but now it's MY purse. I really don't mind him going in because he knows there's always some kind of treat in there (sometimes just for him) but some days are worst than others.
The other night I noticed he was chewing gum and asked where he got it, I noticed my bag thrown to the side and not just one stick taken out but several pieces and some half chewed. WTF?! I scolded him and told him not to go in my bag unless I sent him in there. My father, in the peanut gallery says "You should never send him in there in the first place!" ::heavy side eye at the unwanted piece of advice:: but when I asked why he said "Boys shouldn't make it a habit of going in their mother's bag".
I think Dad was traumatized and found some feminine things in his mother's bag as a kid lol but it got me thinking. Should kids be allowed to go in Mommy's purse? Do they ask permission or is it just completely off limits?
