I was hanging out with friends the other night, you know, like you do. We had enjoyed dinner and brownies, and we were all talking. About this time, Baby Bird, my 3 year old approached to tell us something. I scooped her up onto the table. I couldn’t help but notice she had a giant hunk of brownie hanging from the tip of her precious curls. I yanked it out of her hair, and did not have a napkin handy. So, I did what every loving mother would do, I popped the brownie from my daughter’s hair into my mouth for ease of disposal. One of my guests queried incredulously, “Did you just eat chocolate from your child’s hair?”
Oh Wow… how do I answer that one? I am getting the vibe that I just did something in public that (although everyone has done in private) should be done in private. What could I do but just own all that chocolaty deliciousness?
So I replied, “Yeah, I didn’t have a napkin (like that is going to excuse me eating food particles from my child’s hair).” Come on people, for reals, like you have never played, “Poop or Chocolate?” We have all played that game. It wasn’t something from the floor. I knew I had just given my child a brownie. The odds were ever in my favor on this one, so I defend my actions and it was delicious AND I would do it again.
