After lunch or dinner, if the twins do a good job and they eat some fruit or veggies, they get to pick dessert. Lately Tom has been picking a "mama cookie" also known as Double Stuff Oreo to the rest of the world. He told me the other day he'd like to dip his cookie in a glass of milk because that's what the picture on the front of the package told him to do. It's a photo of an oreo splashing into milk, for those not in the know.
Tom's been begging Abby to dip her oreo too. Well yesterday she decided it was time to try the dip! I got her a wide mouth plastic glass, filled it with milk and set her up at the table with her oreo cookie. I wasn't paying attention much and about 5 minutes later, there she sat, alone at the kitchen table with puppy dog eyes and cookie crusted lips. She says, "Mommy? I forgot to dip my cookie." Oh, it was so heartbreaking, but so funny at the same time! Unfortunately for her, she had eaten the very last oreo in the entire house, so there was no dipping that day. Maybe next week.
Here is a completely unrelated photo of the twins taken last weekend. They really are best friends.
