One of my worst fears come true

My baby’s first innocence has been stolen away. By chocolate.

She unwittingly discovered her first taste of of it all on her own. Her big brother had accidentally left a piece of his foil wrapped chocolate from Valentine’s Day on the floor. No one else noticed it. No one except baby.

I found her under the table, quietly and happily chomping away at it… wrapper and all.

At only seven months old, this is considered a very very bad thing. I should have been crying but I ended up laughing instead. I couldn’t help it. Especially when I was met with such a look of pure bliss on her cute little chocolate-covered face.

“Guess what I found, mummy?”

What surprises have your little ones come up with recently? Did it make you laugh or cry (or both)?
