Krazy for Krispy Kreme

Since Krispy Kreme had been on my mind for several days, Hubby and I decided this morning that we would pull ourselves together and take Munchkin out for her first taste of those, little, doughy, glazed pieces of heaven. I had a passing thought while getting the diaper bag ready, should I take a banana? Who did I really think I was kidding? A place full of sugar, sprinkles, cream stuffed, iced, glazed, lemon filled doughnuts and I thought my child might want her banana???? So much for any wishes of a balanced breakfast today.

For fear that she might explode from the sugar rush, I decided to start her out on just a plain cake doughnut, once she breezed through that one, I realized quickly that she was a natural, ready for the "Original". I pulled off a few bites of a glazed, laid it in front of her and it was on!!! It was like baby crack, she got this crazed look in her eye, and immediately started signing and saying "mo, mo, mo" and reaching for the box... The sugar had officially kicked in, and she was looking for her next hit. Mommy becomes the dealer. I continued to feed her addiction for a few more minutes, before finally cutting her off at 1 cake, and almost 1 glazed.

We ran some errands right after, and she was probably just about as cute as she's ever been, in her carseat just rambling on, saying nothing, but everything. So, if you ever need your child to have a little energy, may I suggest a Krispy Kreme?
