I was getting out 2 cookies for Stan and myself to have tonight with tea, and Stan happened to ask about the box of girl scout cookies he noticed in the pantry. I told him they were still sealed, but that he could open them. He said, that no, that way they were zero calories 😉 At which point Connor, carefully listening to and absorbing this whole exchange, chimes in: “I want a calorie. Give me a calorie please!” Both of us just melted into a puddle. How could you not give that little guy a cookie?
After he finished his cookie he piped up again: “I need another calorie! I need lots of calories!” 🙂 No kidding son. You DO need to grow, you know 🙂
Later tonight, Edward, our 4-year-old, decided to be a bit philosophical too:
“You know what’s interesting? Connor is only one, and he talks so well! That’s very amazing!” 🙂
These two boys never stop to amaze me with their pearls of wisdom 😉
