Sometimes It Doesn't Take Much
Daughter loves these cookies - little shortbread cookies topped with red sugar crystals. She has loved them for years. It's been so many years now that I can't even remember when I first started buying them for her. And they are cheap!
You might be familiar with them but if not, they can be found at Wallyworld for the low, low price of only a buck fifty a bag on the Seasonal Items aisle.
It's become a tradition now. Whenever the Valentine merchandise goes on the shelves I look for these cookies. And I buy Daughter a bag.
When I was in Wallyworld on Monday the cookies were out in their same, familiar place (north end of the aisle on the right, just about eye level.)
I picked up a bag and AD took them to her that evening. G2 immediately grabbed the bag and tore into them. Evidently he inherited his mother's love for them.
It's ok. I'll buy another bag for Daughter so she can have one all to herself.
They don't cost much. And she loves them. And it's a small way to show Daughter that I'm thinking of her.
Do you have a special way to let your kids know you're thinking of them?
