Chocolate-the best medicine

The packages are finally ariving! The first one included some chocolate. Possum and Squirrel are just like their mother and know that chocolate makes everything better!!

This morning Possum came to me and said that he wanted banana pudding pancakes. Since he has not wanted anything to eat, I wanted to grant his request and fix what he wanted. The problem was I didn't know what banana pudding pancakes was. I started questioning him and all he could
say was that they had made them on Elmo. I questioned him further by asking him if he wanted a banana pudding (which is a favorite of his and his daddy). He said no. I asked if he wanted pancakes (made from Mama's recipe of course). He said no. He wanted banana pudding pancakes. I
finally figured out that he wanted pancakes with bananas mashed up in them. I quickly mixed them up and started to cook them. I admit that they smelled really tempting and told Possum that I wanted one as well. He quickly reminded
me that I was on a diet and could not have one. A few minutes later Joel called
home to check on us and I was giving him a run down of the morning. I told him
that Possum said that I couldn't have a banana pudding pancake because I was too
fat and on a diet. Possum got really upset looking and said "Mommy, you are not
too fat. You are just on a diet." Anyways, I watched on patiently, praying that
he would eat the pancake. After several minutes pasted the pancake was finally
all in the belly and thankfully it has remained in the belly! Maybe Possum
is coming out of this awful virus.
