Three words you don’t hear together every day: sea creature gummies

I think the only thing better than gummy sea creatures in Will’s opinion is gummy sea creatures on a stick. This spectacular confection came from his Auntie Melissa along with his birthday present, isn’t it something?

He was very good about eating just one piece a day and about sharing it with his brother, though no freakin’ way was he going to share the shark with Henry. He did give Henry the giant blue eel/ray thing at the top, though. I think he is hoping if he is very, very good he’ll get another one someday.

Thank you, Melissa!

    I have to say, I LOVE those sharks. I can see why he didn’t want to share.

    He SHARED that beautiful creation? Now that’s true brotherly love. I’d say he earned himself another one.

    I love gummies. Gummy anything so I can totally relate to your little boy. I have not introduced gummy to my son since he is only one and I am trying to keep some things from him as long as possible.
