Baby Girl is Smart (part 1)

The other day I was eating some fine Mint Bliss Ghirardelli chocolate that had been given to me by a friend who really knows what I like. Now I ask you, do you think I could share this rare treat with my children? Don't answer that. No, do. Would you?

I remember my parents squirreling away special things they said were for adults only. X-rated cheese or chocolate. I swore (as a child) I would never make my kids feel like second class citizens and I would share my treats when I grew up. Then I grew up and changed my mind.

It takes a seasoned palate to appreciate intense dark chocolate Ghirardelli with a hint of natural mint. So what did I do when Baby Girl asked for a taste? I told her it was for a my headache. (The truth mingled with fiction). And what do you think she did? She slapped her hand to her forehead and said in a most sincerely painful voice "my head hurts..."

Dang she's good!

Maybe you should have told her that it was for girls who had dry pants for a whole year. 'Cause what's a baby girl like her going to remember a year from now?
