Put down the chocolate and nobody gets hurt!

I have a confession- I love chocolate. Okay, who really doesn't? You know how everyone has an addiction to something? Alcohol, drugs, food, TV, sugar-or whatever it is. And you know addiction has been researched and they've found that to a point addiction is hereditary. I now know it is! I have proof!!! Today we were at the mall and I don't usually do this but we stopped at See's. Well I don't normally do it but the past 3 times I've been to the mall, I've gotten a little piece of chocolate (plus the free sample). Blame it on the baby! I let each of the kids pick a piece of their choice today, too. Ashley picked a yummy key lime piece. She ate it-well, more like sucked on it. When she was done she said to me, "Mom, I just love chocolate. It makes me want to do this:" And she took her arms and wrapped them around her head and shoulders, almost like caressing them. I asked her, "How does it make you feel?" And she said, "Like so comfortable and soft." What a funny way to describe to chocolate. But isn't it true!!!!! Then maybe 10 minutes later, the other kids needed a drink of water. Ashley said to me, "I'm not going to drink water. I want to save the chocolate flavor in my mouth for as long as I can." I guess she's got an addictive personality!!!! Way to go, girl!!!!

That is so funny! That's pretty much how I feel about it too, comfortable and soft. :-)
