“Cookie, cookie….. mommy… cookie…” is what Zachary said after we’d walked around Publix (the local grocery store) for about five minutes. Actually, he started saying it after I dared walk through the bakery (which was also the cheese section) and somehow forgot to get him a free chocolate chip cookie (all Publix supermarkets give a free cookie to children). Today was a long day and I made it to the yogurt section before realizing that he was asking for his cookie.
Quickly I doubled back to the bakery and asked the lady for a chocolate chip cookie. He was so happy he almost couldn’t eat it. He just held it happily… staring at it. Finally he took a bite carefully, holding each side of the cookie with one of his little hands. He always savors his cookies since they’re a special treat and not something that we have at home. He rarely ever offers me a bite but today he carefully broke a piece off and stuck his hand out. “Mommy!” he said. “Is this for me?” I asked. “Mommy!” he assured me. He had eaten a little over half of the cookie, but decided that he was in a sharing mood, so he gave the rest to me. I love my sweet little boy!
