It’s a Chocolate Day

It’s a chocolate day.

Evan is in the why phase, which is another post.

It’s a chocolate day.

Sean threw five temper tantrums.

It’s a chocolate day.

It was a 5:30 am wake-up call.  AGAIN.

It’s a chocolate day.

It’s a no-breakfast day, but I’m soooooo HUNGRY at 9:00 am day.  Really?  Because I just threw out your pancakes.

It’s a chocolate day.

It’s a boycott of lunch as well.  Because who wants peanut butter and jelly sandwiches when they can whine for something else with the hope Mommy just might give in to the torture and pull out better food because it can happen one day.

I want chocolate.

It’s an early naptime because everyone is whiney, tantrumy, and sleepy, especially Mommy.  But no, the I’m-almost-four boy decided to boycott naps, even though he’s been up since 5:30.

It’s a chocolate caffeine day.

Although we have an arsenal that includes half a dozen swords and four light sabers, they must have the same damn sword.

It’s a chocolate day.

All the kid DVDs are strewn across the family room; all the pirate treasure is strewn across the family room.  All the cars are out, so is every toy from the random-too-big-to-be-in-the-bucket-shelves-and-can’t-fit-under-the-train-table box.  Now they want Legos.

I want some chocolate.

They want candy.  They want fruit snacks.  They want fruit roll ups.  They want candy.  They want cookies.  They want candy.  They want fruit snacks.  But the sandwiches are still on their plates.

I want chocolate.

It took almost forty-five minutes to clean the pirate treasure with the nag, “pick it up now!” over and over.

It’s a chocolate day.

I sounded like my mom as I demanded to know “how many times I had to say . . . .”

Oh, God, I need chocolate. 

Thank God that I don’t have a smart mouth teenager that answered fifty. 

I think my mom deserves chocolate too.

    At least you had a hella day to support the habit. We had a great day and yet I still made a batch of chocolate chip cookie dough just to have around…I mean, eventually we’ll have one or two cookies to bake. In the meantime I just wanted chocolate.

    Mark~ Thank you. That is so selfless of you.
    jeannie~ especially Mommy.
    insider~ Good point.
    KathyB!~ Just might be. I once owned a bottle of thin mint liqueur. The drink of the gods.
    ck~ See, I didn’t replinish my emergency stash. You’re much smarter than I.

    It’s a chocolate day here too! I think I’ll see if I can move toward the chocolate without waking the child who is napping on me at this very moment. Or maybe we”ll just have chocolate for dinner as we never made it to the grocery store. 😉

    Is chocolate code for liquor? Or a vacation by yourself? Because after reading that post I want a hell of a lot more than chocolate. I want booze and a nap on a vacation by myself. In your honor.
    Don’t you wish we could have tantrums?

  9. faemom Says:

    incognito~ Mmmm. Chocolate for dinner. How I wish for the days I used ice cream for meals. Man, it’s hard to move with a child napping on you.
    naptime~ In my honor? Super nice. Not as nice as having those things though . . . . In my limited wisdom on parenting, I believe we should all throw tantrums. We just have to choose an appropriate time and place. 🙂

    isn’t everyday with toddlers really a chocolate day?

    I swear my kids are driving me to drink and making me fat!
