This is the look I get each time we go in to Publix or Walmart...this sweet little smirk of a grin. She scrunches up her nose, smiles up at me with her big brown eyes, and points at the Bakery adamantly until I turn the wheels of my shopping cart in the direction she's requesting...and what does she want? The COOKIE! I've asked myself many times why I ever allowed her to get a cookie to begin with, and than I'm quickly reminded after she starts munching on it that my shopping escapade is MUCH more enjoyable when she has a cookie stuffed in her mouth. :-) Parenting at it's finest, right?
Chad came home the other day with a box of Chips Ahoy Cookies (something I NEVER buy because I could easily devour the entire container in just a few swallows...it's dangerous stuff!). Lillie somehow sniffed them out of our cabinet and after pointing and begging all morning, I let her have one after lunch today. Look at that sweet contented expression!...my girl likes her sugar. :-)
"Look Ma!...no hands!" Ok, actually, she was trying to signal to me that she wanted another cookie - uh....me thinks you've had enough!
