Chocolate fiend

Every year Ang and I get chocolate advent calenders to help count down the days until Christmas. It was no big deal really until about 3 years ago. My buddy was going to Cosco and asked me if I wanted him to pick up a couple of Lindt chocolate advent calenders. His wife absolutely loved them and he thought Ang might too. I said sure and when he brought them into me the next day I was blown away to find out that they were $25 a piece.
My whole life I had been getting the $1 calendars that had a total chocolate weight of about 30 grams. These calenders that he brought me were a whopping 290 grams of chocolate. Not to mention that Ang and I both love Lindt. Some days it feels like you get a full size chocolate bar. PRETTY AWESOME!.
To make a long story short, we only have one of those calendars this year, but we came across one about half the size at about 128 grams of chocolate. Of course that one's mine(I'm not complaining, really I'm not). Anyway, I decided that I would share my chocolate with Malaia each day. She' goes right bananas when she sees said calendar and absolutely loves the foil wrapped treat awaiting her behind the tiny closed window. When it's gone, she stands up points emphatically at box and gives me the eye.. I calmly say "no honey not until tomorrow". To which she throws her head right back and yells then lets her whole body fall backwards(we're usually on the cushions on the couch) and cries for about 2 mins.. It's not long, but it's enough of a taste of temper tantrum that I'm not looking forward to the real thing.
