There are all kinds of rivalry’s in a marriage. Opposing colleges, different political parties, sports teams. But what about chocolate versus non- chocolate? How do you ensure that your child is able to experience the absolute delight of chocolate and understand the fantastic wonderment and total delight? Well, I am not sure how I did it, but I think I might have succeeded.
My husband received a gift card to Cold Stone for his birthday and we were finally able to go. He reasoned that because it was his birthday and our little boy liked ice cream he would then order 2 cups of vanilla based flavors that he wanted to try. I ordered my usual chocolate flavored something cup and we were on our way. We were sitting at our table and little guy had complete eyes on my ice cream. My husband placed a spoonful of vanilla based ice cream in my little boys mouth… and it did not stay for long! I then tried some chocolate ice cream and he ate it right up! Even after my ice cream was gone and there was still some of the other flavors left… he had no interest in them. Ha, winning the battle on raising our first chocolate fan! For those of you that have been here a bit, you know that my husband, even though we call him Chocolate Dad, is not a chocolate fan.
Anyway, I am sure there are many parenthood battles that we will embark upon. At least I could help my child “choose the right” on this one.
Any friendly marriage rivalries in your house?
