Most toddlers love to get their little hands on sweets whenever they can. Chocolate, cookies, cake, ice cream. All the good stuff.
My girl loves salt and all things salty. Chips, french fries, crackers. Thats the good stuff to her. So to my suprise the other night, I was eating a fudge round (thanks Little Debby) and she was reaching out her little hand...wanting some! I was actually glad to oblige..I thought maybe this would be our turning point and she'd like her sweets like the rest of us.
Side note..no I don't want to stuff her little mouth with cookies and candy. Nor do I stuff it with chips and crackers. They are 'treats' and treated thus so.
She liked it! The one bite she took, that is! But it was so funny to see her with chocolate on her little mouth. Maybe there is hope that she'll eat cake for her 2nd birthday this year after all!!
In case your wondering..no..we didn't have a 'cake smash' for her 1st birthday. Good thing too..she didn't touch her cake! She wanted chips!
