Cotton candy

April 27th, 2012

I took the boys to the county fair today, and bought them some cotton candy. Blue cotton candy, big puffy clouds of blue cotton candy. The Boychen ate a tiny bit of his and then decided that he didn’t want anymore and gave it to me. So I ate most of it, one of the pitfalls of having small children and the reason I’m perpetually trying to lose two pounds. It’s also, however, one of the major bonuses of having small children. They give you an excuse to walk around the county fair eating big puffy clouds of blue cotton candy. An excuse to ride the Ferris wheel and pet the dwarf goats and the baby pigs.

They give you a reason to go to the fair at all.
