"Chaukie," my two year old son screamed, running towards the table.
"No, you've already had enough chocolate," I tried to reason.
He jutted out his lower lip and in true swiper-the-fox fashion said, "Aw man."
I placed him on the floor next to the toy cars and went back to the bathroom to finish applying my make-up.
"Cars, cars, cars," I heard him growl then squeal the word from the other room as he tested out different qualities of his voice.
After applying some eye shadow, I reached for my mascara. It took me a moment to realize it had become quiet. I quickly made my way down the hall, where I found my son sitting at the table, a pile of hershey's kisses in front of him, his lips outlined in chocolate, and a big smile on his face.
He met my serious stare. "Chaukie," he told me happily.
I laughed and sat down to eat a few myself.
My son's newly discovered indulgence this year is quite obviously chocolate. What do you indulge in over the holidays?
