Kevin sees Jen mixing dough: "Are you making cookies?"
Jen: "No, it's apple pie."
Kevin: "Well why not cookies?"
Jen: "Because we have apples to use today."
Kevin: "Well, THEN can you make cookies?"
Jen:"Not today, I'm already making pie today."
Kevin: "Oh." *big sigh* "I love it."
Jen: "You love what? Cookies?"
Kevin: "No, apple pie."
Jen, surprised at his change of tune: "Oh, good."
Kevin: "Why are you making apple pie?"
Jen: "Because Kevin likes apple pie and I like Kevin."
Kevin: "Oh." *short pause* "Well I don't."
Jen: "You don't like apple pie?!?!?!"
Kevin: "Nope. Don't like it. I LOVE it!"
*very long pause*
Kevin: "So, how 'bout NOW make cookies?"
We went round and round and up and down this conversation - oh yes! ;) Toddler logic, must love! And with all this talk of cookies I've had this Veggie Tales' song running through my head:
"Larry: `Oh, Santa! I can`t wait for you to come, I just can`t wait for you to come, and I`ve got cookies! Two yummy cookies! Just for you for when you come, oh me, for you for when you come ... BECAUSE IT'S CHRISTMAS!`"
And when warding off a pillaging viking:
"Larry: `I don`t have land ... I don`t have crops, my viking friend, but I have cookies--two yummy cookies. And I don`t have horses, but please take this my viking friend. Eat one of these my viking friend. They are for Santa, but you may have one.`"
I'm taking some cues from Kevin and Larry and when I'm running late to work I bring cookies! "I'm late -- but I have cookies!" I announced one day, with Larry the Cucumber's cookie song running through my head. I DID refrain from singing it for them. :) Perhaps next time.
And now, I'm going to make cookies. For Kevin, and the rest of my family, and not to mention that it is useful to have cookies in case of random bank robbers and pillaging vikings -- you never know when one might show up!
