And how do I know that Zane has a bit of a problem with chocolate?
Hmmm? Let's take his after-(non)nap snack for example.
I do allow a cookie or sweet everyday. Nothing extreme. Nothing overboard. Today, I only had mint/chocolate biscotti's. He tried one. He liked it. He practically hissed at me when I suggested he dunk it in milk. That would get the chocolate in the milk! And, oddly enough, Zane doesn't like chocolate milk. Would I seriously suggest that he turn a yummy treat into a chocolate-less, mushy, soggy mess?
Sorry. Must have lost my head for a moment.
And then? When it was all gone? Finished? Traces of chocolate lingering on his face?
He has the nerve to ask for a second.
The answer is no.
Harper suggests an apple. I suggest some crackers. Harper suggests "regular food".
"I DON'T LIKE REGULAR FOOD! I ONLY LIKE CHOCOLATE!"
Um, yeah. We hear you loud and clear, Augustus. Have a great time in the chocolate river, son. We'll meet up with you at the end of the tour.
