The Boy Who Loved Chocolate

DSCF9741Oh Jake, you look like your father, you are built like your father, and you act like your father. But I know you are truly my son because you have a love of chocolate like no other child I have ever seen!

Two days ago Emma brought Jake into my room and said, “Mama, you know what I caught him doing? He was out on the back porch with the container of Ovaltine eating it by the spoonful!” Had it been the first time he had done it I may have found it cute but since it is an ongoing, every day occurrence I was annoyed instead of overwhelmed by the adorable smile that was spread across his chocolate covered face.

Mike has taken to calling him "Gloop" after Augustus Gloop!

Still, it’s hard to get too mad at him when I understand his love of chocolate. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t crave at least a tiny bit. I don’t always eat chocolate but I completely and thoroughly understand why he’d risk getting in trouble to get to that sweet goodness.

I’m not sure what I am going to do with him. He’s a handful already without his constant chocolate escapades!
