The Boy has a little song at the moment that he sings, 'A cuddle and a kiss and a walking stick'. As a result when I saw a plastic one filled with sweets recently I bought it for him so he could sing the song properly. I removed the sweets and binned them because they were foul and I may as well just have poured E numbers down his throat. He was slightly disgruntled so I put a few mini eggs in to appease the situation. Over the course of the past fortnight he's eaten them gradually.
The other day he said, "Please could I have one because (with a cheeky smile on his face) I'm greedy?" and so I opened it up and three broken bits (the remaining pieces fell out). He put one in his mouth, I asked if I could have one and he put another in his mouth. I asked again and he looked at me and put the last one in his mouth.
Astounded I pointed out that I'd asked to share them with him and looked at him open mouthed. He promptly took one out of his mouth and put it in my open and disgruntled mouth. Nice hey? At least he shared.
