Two things Lily did today that epitomize her state of being.
We were at the smoothy store, there was a plate of chocolate chip cookies on the counter and Lily asked if she could have one. I said we could split one. She then asked all of us, including the young lady behind the counter which cookie had the most chocolate chips in it. We all looked and we ALL agreed on a specific cookie that indeed had the most chips in it. Lily looked at us all, looked at the plate and proceeded to point to a cookie on the opposite side of the plate and say, “I want that one!”
Later that same day we were at Whole Foods and Lily asked for a rubber band, she collects them and does some pretty cool things with them at home I will attest, the guy at Whole Foods said, I have something even better than a rubber band, do you want to be a part of our kids club and get free stuff? Yes was the overwhelming answer. The man produced a card (always a very attractive thing for Lily and Luke), and explained that you can have a FREE fuji apple, small milk or oatmeal raisin cookie just by presenting the card to the cashier. Kids were all excited and we were about to leave when Lily says:
“Can I please have a rubber band?”
Yes, of course, you can.
