Mom changes sheets and discovers mattress is hiding secret hoards of candy

Changing the sheets is usually a pretty boring, routine task — unless you discover something shocking in the process.

That’s what happened to one TikTok mom (@julianne0106) when she went to change her kids’ sheets on their bunk bed.

Presumably, everything started out pretty normal — until she went to remove the fitted sheet. That’s when she made an unexpected discovery, and grabbed her phone to record.

Squirreled away between the fitted sheet and the top mattress, Julianne discovered pockets of granola bars, lollipops, cough drops, grocery store twist ties, and more — all safely tucked away and out of sight, but very much within reach.

The caption for her TikTok video, which has now been liked over 3 million times, simply reads, “When you’re changing sheets on your kid’s bunk bed and find her secret stash.”

“Just pls be careful how you handle this…”

Most of the comments on Julianne’s video loved her child’s ingenuity. “You have a genius on your hands!” said one user.

Another added, “Bro that’s what I did in my basic training for the army! I never got caught!”

One parent commiserated, “Once I went to put the leaf in our dining table and found fossilized vegetables that my son had snuck in there from dinners over the years.” (If only that mom had also captured that moment for TikTok!)

But some parents expressed concern about the child hiding snacks and goodies. “Just pls be careful how you handle this. I used to hide food bc my parents judged me for eating. so there could be something more!”

Julianne, however, was quick to put those worries to rest. “It COULD but it isn’t anything more than kids being kids… Thanks for your concern though!”

Now that the kids’ hoards of candy have been uncovered, one has to wonder if they’ve since found a new and even more clever hiding spot for their goodies? Either way, parents at home, if your kids have a bunk bed, you might want to take a peek under that fitted sheet!
