I discovered I wasn’t the only one to stock up on comfort food yesterday. On my back home from the chiropractor, I bought a chocolate cake, HD cookies and cream and a packet of pretzels. A friend texted me to say she had bought something chocolatey for herself and a colleague mentioned carrot cake to me this morning. Winter blues, folks.
Anyway, I digress.

I joined the Bear a few minutes later and she handed me her plate which – the cake was half eaten. Thinking she was full, I took the plate off her as she said, ‘you have it, Mama’. Aww, how sweet, I thought. Until I saw her make a beeline for my plate. … !
