You know how Noah is a chocoholic? Well, turns out he is a peanut butter’oholic too. Whenever he sees that yummy JIF jar in the pantry he gets all hyped up and starts, first calmly, saying “butter” then he gets more and more frantic until he gets a taste of the good stuff. He loves the ‘butter!
He also thinks muffins are cupcakes so it wouldn’t be too great if he told people he had butter cupcakes for breakfast….. Oh, I can just picture the judgemental looks I would get over that one!
