Wherein bribery becomes grey area…
Background – Mikey and I have Hellsing vol. 4 and chocolate cheesecake filling waiting. It’s 7:15pm. The Shortcake is still awake. Must speed up the bedtime process. Go.
Me: Shortcake, it’s time for a bath.
SC: No, I’m clean.
Come on, kid, let’s go! Momma’s gotta get her chocolate on!
Me: Your last bath was 3 days ago. You stink.
SC: No. I just smell like clean.
You’re killing me!
SC: See smell me. I smell like clean.
Fine. You wanna play hardball. I’m game.
Me: Mmmm…this is so tasty!
SC: gasp! What’s that?
Me: This is a bathtime snack. Only people in tubs get to have this.
SC: Uh-oh! I just smell like nasty! Smell my hair. It’s gross!
Moral of this story: chocolate cheesecake filling equals bedtime victory.
I would love to give up this recipe, but the problem is… I don’t know it. I threw stuff together to get it eaten before it went bad. My bad.
