Have you ever watched a child eat an oreo cookie? If not, I highly recommend you do so. It has become a tradition that my little Jerome has to have a cookie right before he goes to bed and not just any cookie will do, it has to be an Oreo cookie. Every night we have a routine, get stuffed Mickey Mouse, dinos, juice and cookie and off to bed we go. For some reason I decided to watch Jerome as he proceeded to munch on his cookie. First, he twists off the top and oh so slowly he nibbles it until it's gone, then comes the good stuff....the cream. He takes his little pointer finger and carves it out little by little until it's all gone. Finally, when he's to the last piece of his oreo he shoves the whole thing into his mouth and closes his eyes and savors every last bite and then to finish it off he licks all five fingers just to make sure he gets every last taste. Give your child an oreo and watch them as they eat'll make you want a cookie.
