While at the grocery store this past week, I told Brendan he could pick out a treat and the holiday Oreo cookies were his choice. I shouldn’t have been surprised- Oreo’s have been his favorite cookie for a while now. In fact, we’ve had several trips to the grocery store end in tears when I wouldn’t let him get a bag.
He got 2 for a snack after dinner and then proceeded to use his stool to get the bag off the counter and sneak 3 more. I now have to hide them on the top shelf of a cabinet or else he’d eat these all day long. He even got up the next morning asking for cookies and threw a fit when I told him he was just going to have to deal with pancakes. Who knew Oreo’s could cause so many tears?
The only downside is the red “holiday” filling since it gets all over everything Brendan comes in contact with. It’s a bit of a pain to clean up but it’s a sacrifice I’m willing to endure so Brendan can enjoy his favorite treat.
