Sad and happy biscuits


My boys love Oreos…the whole opn them, lick them, dunk them in milk routine is something they totally enjoy. The last time we were with my in-laws for a holiday, my father in law picked up a local variant of the Oreo cookie – something called Happy Happy. (very similar in concept, looks and taste to the Oreo…only difference being the design on the outside of the cookies).
The boys like Happy Happy too and so when i recently picked up cookies i got a packet of Happy Happy with the Oreos.
The three boys came home from school and I gave them the Happy happy with their glass of milk. Amu looked at the biscuit and turned to me and said “I want sad happy please…not this one” It took me a minute to realize that he meant he wanted the original oreos and not the local take on it 🙂

Mom - a word that defines me... I smell of oats, johnson's and home baked cookies I am pink, purple, green and orange and so is the floor my kids color on. Flour on my clothes and a brush in my pocket, my glasses bent out of shape and smudged with tiny fingerprints. I can't remember the date but i know almost 40 pictures books by heart. I wake up humming 'wheels on the bus'and i talk with my fingers and eyes and mouth. My bag carries band aids, napkins, wipes, crayons, papers, candy and sometimes my wallet. I know all the parks and very few of the restaurants in my neighborhood. Most of my shopping is diapers, books and paints My phd certificate lies in a roll, the frame now contains an abstract work of art by two year olds and i am prouder of that piece of paper. mom - a word that defines me!
