I do not believe in saving my cookie for dessert. Why should I wait? What if I eat my salad and my apple and when I'm finished, I'm too full? I'd rather start off with a cookie, while I'm hungry and savoring every single crumb.
But, I also do not believe in saving my cookie for lunch or dinner. If I have cookies in the house, I'll eat one with breakfast. Or for breakfast, depending on how fast time has run out and if I'm in a race to see if I get to work on time.
Some more shocking news: I don't care if my kids follow in my cookie footsteps. Of course, lately our cookies have all been oatmeal and that makes it feel more breakfasty, but even if it's a chocolate chocolate chocolate cookie, and I spy a kid eating one as they walk out the door for school, well, that's okay.
I feel less guilt then when I sit down with mine!
