So my son had a 20 minute cry-fest because he ate his gingerbread man friend.

Sunday night we decorated huge gingerbread men. My son had a great time not only making a mess but designing his man. When he was done he took a few bites, stopped and began to wimper. The wimpering turned into a full on screaming and crying tantrum. When I calmed him down and got a chance to ask him what  is wrong. I thought he may have bitten his tongue. He said he felt sad because he ate his friend. 

I had to tell him that his gingerbread friend was made to be eaten... needless to say the gingerbread man has been sitting in a ziplock bag since the other night.

That's what I told him, it calmed him down but he still wont eat it. I am going to buy a gingerbread house and see if he will eat that.
