I asked Margo if she wanted some chocolate chip banana bread. No, she said. Two minutes later, I could see her great big eyes over the counter.
She was looking at a wayward chocolate chip.
“A melted chocolate chip, it fell out of the bread.”
“Can I have that?”
…. she tiptoed and grabbed the chip with her tiny LittleLady hand. Gobbled it up, quickly. One whole minute later I saw those eyes again.
“Can I have more those chockit chips?”
I pushed the stump of leftover bread toward the edge of the counter. The tiny lady hand swiftly snagged a chip and shoved it ever so sweetly into her little lady mouth. I don’t think she walked away this time, but stayed put with her hand on the counter.
“I can have that bread?”
“Yes. I asked you if you wanted some, but you said no.”
“Yes. I want it.”
“Here you go, sit down.”
“Mmmmmmm chockit!” ….
Each night, after we read, and before we say prayers, we share the “best part of our day”.
That was the best part of my day!
