If you give a toddler a chocolate croissant...

Inspired by a friend's FB status update, I wrote my own, short version of the popular "If you give a" series by Laura Numeroff.

For better or for worse, here it is:

If you give a toddler a chocolate croissant, he'll want some milk to go with it. And as you go to the kitchen to find a clean sippy cup, you'll remember that all the cups are still in the car.

On your way to the car for a clean sippy cup, your neighbor will want to chat with you. While you are chatting, the neighbor will not be able to keep her eyes off your clothes. You think you must be pretty stylish today.

Once you get back into the house, you'll need to go into the bathroom to rinse the cup out (because the sink is still full of last night's dishes). You'll walk into the bathroom and then stare in horror at the mirror as you realize why your neighbor was checking out your clothes.

As you trudge upstairs to change out of your now chocolate stained clothing, you'll remember that your older children still aren't dressed yet either. You'll  rummage through the hamper for something that resembles clean and head back down stairs.

Eventually, all of your children are dressed and ready for breakfast. You'll scramble their eggs and pour them a glass of milk.

Your toddler will see you pouring milk for them and want a cup himself. When you give him the cup of milk, he want a chocolate croissant to go with it.
