I'll be polite, but I won't share


If you read this post about the "no thank you bite," then you may remember that Mary Clare's willingness to acquiesce so readily to this new rule had something to do with the fact that there was a Girl Scout cookie on the line.

Chip had a cookie as well, and since he finished his well before Mary Clare, he asked if he could have hers. Rather than say no, she tried to come up with a solution for dear old dad. You could see the wheels turning. And oh, the look of concern on her face!

C: Mary Clare, can I have your cookie?
MC: Where's your cookie?
C: I ate it. Can I have yours?
MC: Do you want mommy's cookie?
C: She doesn't have one.
MC: You want some broccoli?
C: No, I'd like a cookie.
MC: You drink your water?
C: I will, but can I still have your cookie?

I'm honestly surprised she didn't shove the whole thing in her mouth at this point. I made Chip stop before she was forced to suggest that he eat his place mat. Poor thing. She just needs to tell him to bug off next time.
Please don't make me share with him.

I better eat this as fast as I can.
