Sour and Sweet

My trainer and my dentist would love this--I ate a handful of Sour Patch Kids for breakfast. (In bed) I asked my daughter what her favorite flavors were. She replied as she popped a soft and chewy lemon candy into her small, pink mouth, “Red, orange then yellow and my least favorite is green. I said, “Guess what, my order is the same.” Her pretty, blue eyes grew wide and she smiled at me. Then I said, “Guess what?” She looked at me. My heart skipped a little as my eyes danced over the tiny light sprinkling of freckles that kiss her nose and cheekbones. I declared, “I love you SO much that you can have the last red one in the bag.” I handed it to her. She broke it in half and said, “Here mommy, you have the head.” I replied, “No thank you, honey, you eat it.” And she did.

Hmmm... Sweets for breakfast eh? One of my favorite sweets is Swedish Fish. I can eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner, though I've been trying not to eat them as much. However, I just received a box of them a few days ago from a very attractive woman that I know. So, now I'm tempted to eat them more than ever. :-)
