Mad Maddie and the Chocolate Factory

Posted on Updated on

Hey Dad, come get a whiff of this!

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. The baby wakes up in the morning and mom and dad go in to fetch her. The diaper gets changed and we head into the living room to start the day. Just as I put Maddie down, her mom asks, what’s that on Maddie’s collar? I take a quick look and wonder, “Do I really want to know?”

Mom picks up the baby and daddy mentally prepares himself for battle. I’m not sure what that brown stain is, but when is a brown stain ever good news to any parent? I readied myself for the worst and inched my nose closer to the offending collar.

I got in there to take my obligatory snort and found myself smiling at the result. It was chocolate, the best possible outcome for such a dirty investigation. Both parents pondered where the mysterious chocolate had come from.

Is Maddie a rogue chocolate runner?

(The dark world of chocolate smuggling)

Is the baby a chocolate mule for some Swiss candy company?

(Where are the profits?)

Did mom have chocolate on her hands?

(Mom’s stance: Deny Deny Deny)

Did poo magically transform into chocolate?

(We can always hope)

Does Maddie poop chocolate?

(Past history would contradict that possibility)

Does dad need his sniffer recalibrated?

(That would be some mistake!)

We will probably never know how Maddie woke up covered in chocolate – but let me leave you with this. It was the most pleasant surprise and the sweetest outcome any parent could have wished for!
