First Girl Scout Cookie

Mason tried his first Girl Scout Cookie, a rich and chocolaty thin mint, over the weekend. In the few seconds that it took him to devour it, he managed to cover himself in chocolate, from his cheeks to the tips of his toes–no easy feat considering that he was sitting in a high chair. I think we had as much fun watching him as he had enjoying the treat. The look on his face was absolute bliss, and I’ll never forget it.

Girl Scouts were a big part of my childhood. I was in the local troupe with some of the other neighborhood girls, and we sold the cookies door-to-door every year. Like Mason, my first GSC was a thin mint at home, and I loved every bite of that chocolatey goodness. It was fun to relive that childhood memory though my son. (If only they made gluten-free cookies, I could still enjoy them…hint, hint Girl Scout Cookie Bakers!)

Where were you when you had your first Girl Scout Cookie moment with your kid?

    So cute!
    It’s funny I seemed to have trouble finding girl scouts to buy cookies from this year, since I am no longer working.
    Luckily my brother in law owns a bar and can’t say no to a cute girl scout so he sent us several boxes of cookies!
    My little guy is still a little too young for cookies this year, but maybe next year. Can’t wait to see his cookie face :)
