Little Boy Hides in Closet to Eat Ice Cream After Mom Says No

A little boy who was told at his home in Seminole, Florida, on October 1 that he had to eat his dinner before getting ice cream, was caught redhanded by his mother as he hid in a closet to eat the treat he sneaked out of the freezer.

Miranda Vinci told Storyful that she knew her son Michael was “up to something” when the house went quiet. “Michael is pretty active throughout the house so when I didn’t hear him, I knew,” she said.

The adorable footage shows the mom walking up the stairs and calling for her son. As she pushes a closet door open, the little boy can be seen with an ice cream cone in his hand and chocolate all over his mouth. Credit: Miranda Vinci via Storyful

MIRANDA VINCI: So I told him he couldn't have an ice cream, and then all of a sudden he ran upstairs. And now he seems like he is very far away and being very quiet. Michael? Mikey?

- Sorry.

MIRANDA VINCI: What are you doing? [CHUCKLES]

- I'm just eating-- I'm just gonna about eat a taco in a little bit after I eat this all gone.

MIRANDA VINCI: I told you you needed to eat your dinner first.

- OK, just in a sec.

MIRANDA VINCI: Not just a sec. Get downstairs with that right now.
