    This morning we moseyed on down to Westfield Southland for a free children’s activity, Cookie Decorating with Cookie Monster! (Granted, it’s less mosey-like when you don’t actually have a horse, but at least I was wearing chaps.)

    And Westfield really went all out, spending the big bickies on the most expensive cookies you can lay your hands on, Marie biscuits. For those of who don’t know, the Marie biscuit is somewhere between a cardboard circle and a drink coaster…yummo.

    We iced that puppy up and pimped it out with our selection of smarties, gummi bears, mini-mallows and lolly bananas. Mind you, as fast as they were appearing on the cookie, they were also disappearing down Indy’s throat. Until we spied the hero of the day…

    In the blue corner, standing 6 foot 2 inches, 198 lbs, terrifying children at a single blow, the munching, crunching…

    Cookie Monster!

    Terrifying everyone except the ONLY kid there carrying a Cookie Monster doll, the one kid who could hardly be contained from leaping out of my arms and stage diving across the line of tearful toddlers. The one kid who waved and cookie-eating mimicked his way through the line, the one kid who gave Cookie Monster the biggest hug of all and posed cheerfully with Big and little Cookie Monster.

    The same kid who as soon as it was over, was like it never happened at all. Waved Cookie Monster off, dusted his hands with a ‘been there, done that’ attitude, leapt onto his mighty steed and headed off into the sunset.

    BOOM! Out like a light in under 10 mins. But totally worth every minute.

      It was a real treat seeing the instant look of recognition on his face when he saw Cookie, and wasn’t afraid of him at all. Even when we talked about it before bed, he was still making his Cookie gobbling fingers. (So precious) 😉

Don't leave me hangin'. What's your thoughts?
