Sugar High

I'm a little late on this post, but here goes.

If you remember, my little baby turned 9 last week.

The whole day, or should I say week, she was pretty much in a sugar coma.

It started with this on the actual birthday.
Nothing better than a Meche's donut in the morning. Her preference ... chocolate with sprinkles. Two hours later, she probably collapsed on her desk at school, drool and all.
Then, you know how you have to do the whole bring-something-sweet-to-school-on-your-child's-birthday thing?

Well, I did it. Brownies with frosting and M & Ms on top. Not much sugar, you think?

Then, the same brownies were brought to soccer practice to share again. (Forgot to take pictures.) Just imagine 10 little girls, ravenous from an hour and a half of running and kicking, enjoying these little slices of chocolate goodness.

She went to sleep immediately that night.

The same brownies were given for lunches the following days.

Then, there was the whole party with lots of little girls and one very excited little boy. You can't have a party without cake, right? More cake. Oreo cake ... quite yummy.

And, finally the gift she had been waiting for.
In light of this week, be comforted that this same birthday child is actually punished from sweets for a week, due to the sneaking of a Nutrigrain bar for dessert without permission.

For the record, if I were going to sneak a dessert, it would definitely not be a Nutrigrain bar.

WOW lots of sugar indeed... Sounds like a great birthday!!

L was sneaking food for awhile, I found granola bar wrapper, nutrigrain wrappers, and even a few of my protein bar wrappers in her room.... Not the kind of sweets I would sneak around..LOL

Aw, you're a good mom!
My own little belle turned 1 last week and had her FIRST sweet dessert (chocolate cupcake) and first ice cream. You should have seen the look she gave me when she bit into them: "mom, how could you have held off my whole life giving me this?" It was magical.
i'd totally sneak a nutri grain bar, for the record.

Happy birthday to your sweetie :) Get it...sweetie. Oh, man maybe I have had too much sugar this morning.

LOL. I would've secretly eaten one of those brownies.

Glad she had a great birthday week! The picture of her with the cake cracked me up.

A girl after my own heart. Well, minus the nutrigrain bar for dessert. That's an oxymoron in my book :o)
