So this was the scene on our counter last week (maybe the week before). And to answer the question in short form - it is because my 3 yr old asked me to save her one.
The longer answer is that we had some friends over for lunch one Sunday afternoon - and since we sharpened our hosting skills - we planned for a sweet after lunch. For whatever reason Lee got 2 packs of Oreos from the store. The chocolate on chocolate ones and the Double Stuff regulars - we can debate the ranking of Oreos filling flavors and cookies in another post. ANYWAYS, everyone had their fill of Oreos after lunch and that left the each of the pack about 75% full. As you know, I am pregnant and as you will soon find out, I have about (ehm) no self control when it comes to chocolate - especially A. when I am pregnant and B. when my OB has not put me on weight-gain lockdown.
Needless to say there was a single Oreo left in our house on Wednesday per E's request, "Mamaaaaa, don't eat all the Oreos". I told her I would save her one for dessert and that's what I did.
Lee was less than thrilled with the Oreo devouring situation but he totally brought it upon himself and I blame him completely - because clearly we only needed one pack of Oreos in the first place.
