     Who roller skates down the hallway, almost crashing into the family dog, before landing in a pile of pillows?

      Who hides bags of Hershey chocolate bars, Skittles, bubble gum and Jolly Ranchers in her backpack, behind a rocking chair and underneath her bed?

     Who enjoys tormenting her older sister Aria by sneaking into her room? Swiping lip gloss. Hiding the TV remote.

      It’s Bria – the candy-eating, lipstick-wearing, Barbie-loving 5-year-old kid who is fearless. Except when it comes to bugs. Bria does NOT like bugs.

     In every household there lives the mischief maker named Somebody. You know the one:

    The Troublemaker how makes messes and blames her siblings.

     The Great Snacker who devours potato chips and leave measly morsels for others.

     The Petty Thief who has a fondness for taking things that don't belong to her.

     Despite her misdeeds, there is something endearing about Somebody.  Maybe it's the way she sneaks around, lurking at every corner waiting for the perfect moment to strike.

     Or perhaps it's her sheer boldness that leaves everyone in awe.

      Or maybe it's because no one has ever laid eyes on her.  

       Just who is this Somebody?
