Birthday month - day 3
You've heard of the Cookie Monster? We have the Brownie Monster. Last weekend I bought a tub of bite-size brownies from Sam's Club. The two year old wanted nothing else for three days. He got up in the morning and asked for a brownie. I said he had to eat breakfast first. He said, "I want a brownie for breakfast!" This went on for three days. I'm not sure how they lasted that long, when he was eating 57 at a time. He had a perpetual brown stain around his mouth, and if we didn't have a dog I would have been able to find him by the trail of little brown crumbs. Needless to say, I will not be buying those brownies again while he is still small. It seems to me I read somewhere that kids should eat something besides brownies if you want them to be healthy.
