Lydia, having experienced these types of deliciousness before, was excited and after she did a great job finishing her taco salad, she was able to eat her treat.
And she did so with practiced ease.
At least, until I saw a sugar-high glazing her eyes over and told her she had to save the last third for after lunch the next day. Then a little monster starting shrieking and crying with giant, desperate tears from somewhere inside my little girl. "I WANT ALL OF MY COOKIE NOW!!!"
Now Ammon, this was his first meeting with giant, frosted, sugar cookies. I broke up little pieces for him on his tray and, at first, he was eating so nicely.
And then the endorphins kicked in. He got excited.
"How do I get more of that goodness in me?!"
Now insert the sound the cookie monster makes as he chomps through a cookie, and combine it with this snapshot...
Yes, Ammon got just as wild. You'd think he'd never had a cookie before.
You'd also think that if he loved eating it so much, he would have gotten more of it in his mouth...
These two may not be furry blue monsters, but after this night I wouldn't be surprised to hear them singing, "C is for cookie, and cookies are for me." Over and over and over again.
