Yesterday my kids and I put up the Christmas tree. It's a tradition that after we do so, we make a fancy cup of hot cocoa and drink it while listening to Christmas music and admiring the tree.
I placed a steaming cup of hot cocoa in front of my nine-year-old son and told him that he could put the whipped cream and toppings on it. He grabbed a can of Reddi Wip and sprayed a mountain of the white stuff on top. Then he got the Hershey's chocolate sauce and squeezed about a third of the container onto the mountain he already created.
I looked at that boy and shook my head. "Have a little hot cocoa with your toppings!"
"Mama," he said. "This isn't all for the cocoa. Watch." He dipped his finger into it and spread the goop onto his face. When he was done, he had a white mustache and beard (and a few sprinkles). "See. I decorated my face for Christmas. Now I'm Santa Claus!"
Maybe decorating faces with chocolate should be part of the tradition - from now on.ReplyDelete
Maybe. As long as he cleans up!Delete
Yeah, Ma, he was decorating his face...!ReplyDelete
I'm sure he had that planned all along!Delete
lol. I was not expecting that from your kid. But funny story! And it seems that Christmas is ever closer.ReplyDelete
Stick around here for a while, and you'll come to expect anything from my kid!Delete
Followed by the tradition of washing your son's face, right?ReplyDelete
Guess he wanted to be sure he got the whipped cream moustache.
Yes. Something like that! ;0)Delete
so next thing you must send him down the chimney.....ReplyDelete
Ha! With a big bag of toys - for me!Delete
I think I'll try that the next time I have hot cocoa. Good plan, Bubba.ReplyDelete
I'd like to see a picture of that! ;0)Delete
*hee* Bubba certainly knows how to get creative with his toppings...ReplyDelete
Yes, he does!Delete
Does he bring gifts tooReplyDelete
We'll have to work on that!Delete
I think it's awesome that he's so creative! :)ReplyDelete
He really is creative. I hope he never loses it!Delete
Think what he could do at Starbucks!ReplyDelete
Ha! He'll start a new trend!Delete
Ahh a smart answer! Reminds me I haven't had a hot chocolate with whipped cream and all the toppings in ages - must put on to do list!ReplyDelete
Definitely. Go get some hot chocolate!Delete
Now I know how to answer my wife next time I do the same thing!ReplyDelete
Ha! That's hilarious!Delete
LOL! I love how you let him run with it and have some fun. :DReplyDelete
Why not? It's washable! ;0)Delete
So funny, Bubba always keeps you smiling! DReplyDelete
