I've Created A Monster

A few weeks ago, I noticed that Zach’s day care provider was adding chocolate to his milk every once in a while as a treat.  I had given him chocolate milk a few times at home, but it wasn’t a regular thing.  The next time I went to the store I picked up a bottle of chocolate syrup just to have on hand (since the one in our fridge was years old).  As soon as he saw it, he got all excited and wanted some right then and there.  Since then, the chocolate milk has become a daily thing.  Every time I go to get him a cup of milk, he begs for his “tock-otte.”

Then, last weekend we made a trip to Sam’s to pick up a few things.  I was going to pick up a package of their pre-made cookies since my sister and her kids were coming over, but decided instead to get the big tub of chocolate chip cookie dough and bake them myself.  That way they would be all warm and gooey, just the way I like them.  Besides that, I could sneak a spoonful or two of dough out and no one would notice.

Apparently I wasn’t sneaky enough with the cookie dough, because Zach caught me with a spoonful Saturday night and wanted a bite.  Being the loving mom that I am, I just couldn’t deny him the joy of chocolate chip cookie dough.  Let me tell ya, the boy enjoyed that cookie dough.  He enjoyed it so much that he kept asking for “more”.  After sharing another spoonful, I told him that was enough and put the spoon in the sink.  He wasn’t done though.  He marched right into the kitchen, opened the drawer, pulled out a spoon, held it up to me and said, “more!”

Now every time I go toward the fridge he is either asking for “tock-otte” or grabbing a spoon out of the drawer in order to get a little scoop of cookie dough.  I think his chocolate addiction is starting to surpass mine and that is a scary thing.  It kind of makes me miss the days when he would just beg for cheese or carrots.

  1. ah, the fond memories i have of nibbling cookie dough as a child. my dad was an amazing baker, so we had plenty of yummy batters around when i was growing up. mmmmm… tasty. 🙂

  2. Yeah but chocolate chip cookie dough simply tastes better than carrots imho.

    I wont say that it tastes better than cheese though because cheese is just about my favorite food in the universe 😉

  3. You could just let him lick the batter off the beater (although, I guess with pre-made batter, you wouldn’t need to break out the beaters).

    Well, next time you make cookies from scratch, just give him the beater and let him lick it off. It will be less batter and more fun for him.

  4. OH My, Our kids are sooooo alike! Nolan always wants ‘Cake!” which is his work for Strawberry syrup in his milk. But when we ran out I made an emergency bottle with splenda and some vanilla in it. He loved it and now he always wants ‘Nilla Milk!”
    I’m scared because he won’t drink it plain anymore!
