Not addicted!

My neighbor across the street, told me this tale of her 2 year old son. This son we will call Ryan to protect his innocence.

You see Ryan woke yesterday morning requesting chocolate with a certain amount of persistence. There was a bit of a tantrum involved. When it was explained that there was no chocolate around to be had, my two year old friend insisted there was some in his pocket. When this failed to produce the desired out come, he thought maybe there was some in someone else's pocket. (I want pockets like that. Chocolate in them whenever the whim hits.)

After some time, Ryan's dad was able to calm him down. His Dad had him seated to eat some cold cereal when one of his parents mentioned, "You have a problem buddy. You are addicted."

Sweet Ryan's response, "I'M NOT ADDICTED!" and then followed by a whispered, "I'm not addicted."

Ryan, my little buddy, I'm not addicted either, but if you need a fix, I live across the street. I can hook you up.

can you help with a vicarious fix for peanut butter just for me? :) You can add some chocolate with it because it's my subsitute addiction.

Aw, magic chocolate pockets. Now that would be fun in the dryer!

Tell him to hide a bag of chocolate chips behind the broccoli in the freezer. Then he can just nibble one or two when he NEEDS chocolate. Not that I do that or anything ...
