More Shmear? Yes please!!

Apparently the only blog posts I can muster these days are inspired by the things my son smears on his face. Always the right cheek, ear and curly locks on the side of his head.

Today it was his treat. My brother loved these  Japanese cookies with a little pocket of chocolate in the container you can dip into. They're called "Yan-Yan", sounds delicious no?  So when I saw them at the store today I naturally thought Bowman would love him some Yan-Yan too!  He DID love them and ate them properly for 10 minutes in the car while we drove home, happily dipping the cookie and biting it off. Mmmm!  Then we pulled up to the house and I ran a load from the car to the front door, turned around and found this. 30 seconds I tell you!!

And like any 'good' responsible mother that gives their two-year-old a Japanese chocolate dipping cookie snack, what did I do? why I pulled out my iPhone of course and shot a video. 

You see! A yummy treat and chocolate-facial all in one! Relaxing yet delicious.
Admittedly, I think we can all remember a time that something was so amazingly delicious that we felt tempted to do this too.  (cupcake? cookie-cake? fleur de sel caramel cake? I can think of just a few :)

 I managed to get him out of the car and into the house and since despite appearances,  I actually am smart at times, I decided to let it play out because lord knows he was NOT going to put the Yan-Yan down.

He finally grew tired and gave me the treat and said "thank you".
I wiped off his face and we headed out the door with Dada to go to dinner and away we went; Mama, Dada, Bowie and one chocolate dreadlock that stayed with us until bath-time/dessert :-P
