I think I ate a lot of sweet treats when I was little. Not quite sure, but my taste buds are totally into sweets, so I think it’s safe to assume that I chose dessert over veggies. As if I had to tell you that I love sweets. Anyone that has followed this blog for more than 2 days will figure out that I like my cake. And I eat it, too.
By the way, and totally rhetorical, what genius came up with the saying, “You can’t have your cake and eat it too”? You wanna bet?!? What other purpose does a cake serve?
Anywho, I think my sweet tooth rubbed off on my 2 year old. Kinda sucks ‘cause I have to bribe her; “If you eat this green little tree, Mama will give you this ooey-gooey delicious mess…ok? OK!”
So I made her another treat with Oreos…that’s her favorite cookie.
I know, OMG she is giving her 2 year old that? It’s okay… Relax. It was her Birthday, and she only ate one. She never has more than one. I won’t allow it.
Okay…she probably had two, but I didn’t see her having the second one, so technically, she only had one.
Humongous thanks to the genius behind these bars, Jenny, from the Picky Palate. Her bars made all the tiny party-goers really really happy.
