I gave Chloe an Oreo the other day.

This was the first time she had ever eaten an Oreo.

I drop the cookie on her tray and walk away. A few minutes later, she begins demanding another cookie.

Before getting her another, I notice the remnants of the first Oreo she ate.

I saw two black discs with nothing on them. (She had a mint Oreo, not the regular white cream-filled kind. The mint kind are green.)

I give her the second cookie... I watch. She does the most amazing thing.

How did she know to do that!!! I couldn't believe it. She has never been taught that technique. Neither Matt nor I eat our Oreo's that way.... the craziest thing. They must be born with that 'need' and 'knowledge.' Kind of like knowing how to nurse, poop and cry; a child is born knowing how to eat an Oreo.


  1. That's so funny. My daughter does the same thing!

  2. Good for her! What's sad is that Camden will shove the whole Oreo in his mouth because he's afraid I will take it away from him.


For Christ's love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. -Corinthians 5:14
