The Cookie Jar

27 Oct

Do you know this song?

“who stole the cookies from the cookie jar?”

We do.

 

It is a fun little back and forth game with the family in the car.

 

Well…

Last Sunday…

On the drive to Home Depot…

Landon offered up this little song.

It was going to be fun.

 

So we have a go at it:

 

Me: “Who stole the cookies from the cookie jar?”

Landon: “Mommy stole the cookies from the cookie jar?”

Me: “Who me?”

Landon: “Yes you”

Me: “Couldn’t be…”

Landon: “Then who?”

And so it went.

 

Tenny screaming in the background …

“TENNYSON… TENNYSON TURN”

 

Okay we’ll bite. So Landon says….

“Tennyson! Tennyson stole the cookies from the cookiejar.”

Remember we are 3 1/2.

So instead of the appropriate “who me?” response…

We received…

“NO…

I not…

I not take any of da cookies”

 

It is funny.

So funny I spit and spray the dash.

 

Landon is not happy…

“Tenny no it’s a game…

play it right…

dat is not what you a’post to say”

I explain as best I can how this song goes and we continue.

 

For Tenny, I say “who me”

Landon: “yes you”

“NO I NOT… I SAID I DIDN’T TAKE DA COOKIES…

MOMMY SHE BEES LYING”

WAAAAAAAAAA

 

Landon:

“M O M…. DAT IS NOT RIGHT…

Make her do it right…

She is ter’ble”

 

At this point,

I am laughing so hard,

I am considering stopping at the fire station…

for oxygen.

Slaping

 snorting

wheezing with laughter.

 

Tenny joins in…

Not sure why…

But the vibe takes her with me.

 

And Landon…

Is so exasperated

She says.

“I hates dis family”

Which makes me laugh even more.

I am afraid I may have an accident.

Oh …

some days…

it is just FUN…

to be a mom.
