I close my eyes, relax my memories, and instantly, I am transported to my childhood kitchen table.
It’s 3:30pm and a toe headed eight year old perches next to her mom ready to ramble through the details of a long school day without stopping for breath.
Sometimes there were giggles, sometimes tears, but there was always a listening ear for a heavy heart, and a sweet snack for a famished tummy to nurture the soul.
Seriously, what is it about simply sharing cookies and milk over conversation that can bring me right back to precious childhood memories?
Life was perfect when a plate of Oreos and milk was there waiting (although I would have welcomed Nutter Butters as well)
Last week, I used our free Oreos coupon (that I posted on my new Facebook Fan Page), and our family indulged in a package. Don’t ask me how quickly the ENTIRE package was eaten – it’s embarrassing to admit. Yet, it was so funny to watch how the varying personalities played into how they were eaten. Some dunked them in milk, others separated them and ate the white stuff off first, one princess savored hers, while at least one boy just shoved two in his mouth in one, fell swoop. (That’s teenagers for you and thus the quickly eaten bag.)
As much as I love warm cookies out of the oven, I hate to admit, but if my boys had the choice…well, I won’t even ask.
So what is one of your favorite cookie memories?
And I am just curious….how do you eat your Oreos? I am SO a dunker…all the way!!
(Even though Nabisco sponsored this post so I could share this amazing coupon with you, the Oreo memories, along with the fact that my kids ate a whole bag in one sitting, was all free…from me. )
Here are the details to get your free cookies…
GO JOIN Nabisco’s Facebook Fan page, and starting March 1 and the first Monday of every month for the rest of 2010, there will be a coupon for a free package of Nabisco cookies available for download on the Fan Page. It’s redeemable when you purchase a gallon of milk and another package of Nabisco cookies, and considering how fast we polished off one bag, I’ll gladly take a second bag for free.
