Got Milk - and cookies? Getting Nostalgic

This post is brought to you by got milk? Drink to a brighter future.

My kids have always loved milk.
Milk with dinner, milk with a snack, milk after sports.

I used to tell them to drink your milk, 
it will make you strong, 
it will help your bones and teeth, 
it is full of vitamins and protein, 
it will help you sleep...
all of those are true but they were hooked on one thing, the taste.

I mean really, is there anything better with cookies?
Now they're older, and facing all the pressures of growing up.  
School, homework, competitive sports, friends and social media - 
it's a lot and it can take a toll.
There are days when they come home grouchy and stressed.

I surprised them the other day with a touch of nostalgia.
Chocolate chip cookies and ice cold milk with a straw.
A reminder that some of the things that they have done since they were little 
are not only beneficial today but can make them feel better.
As it turns out I was right  - 
they are strong, have great bones, teeth and hair 
and when they can, sleep like there is no tomorrow.

Selfishly, I wanted a minute to rewind the clock.
They are growing up too fast for me but I know they are on the way 
to being great adults with fabulous futures.
While we ate, we talked about Robert Fulghum's quote.
Can you imagine everyone taking a milk and cookies break daily?
We agreed, the world would be a better, happier, healthier place. 

So surprise someone with classic cookies and milk -
 taking a nap after is optional!
