One thing I love about these girls is that they are (almost) always willing to share. Whether it's treat Jorja gets at preschool, a goodie Jonah gets at a sleepover, or a handful of snacks Josie gets from mommy in the kitchen, everyone gets a taste.
Sometimes it comes without hesitation, but other times, we may run into some arguing, or like today...some toying with emotions.
This morning we got an early start and took a few items to a bake sale at Jorja's school to benefit a local child, Luke, who is dealing with some very serious health issues. I also gave each girl a couple dollars that they could spend at the sale.
Josie went straight to the chocolate dipped Oreos. Smart girl. Jonah opted to get a couple lower priced items. However, when it came time to eat, Jonah asked if she could have a bite of Josie's. And Josies response was awesome. She did not answer Jonah, instead, she looked her right in the eye and took a bite of the Oreo pop. She didn't even blink.
Jonah asked again. Josie took another bite, still staring right at Jonah.
Jonah and Josie facing off in a battle of wills over a bite of oreo cookie and chocolate bliss. And this continues until the last tiny bite of the treat was left. At which point, Josie's mouth upturned into an evil grin very reminiscent of something you would see out of the grinch, and she slowly lifted it up to her mouth. Jonah's eyes grew large with anticipation. Josie paused with it on the edge of her lips...then handed it across the table to Jonah, who broke off a large bite of her brownie and gave it to Josie. Crisis averted.
The peanut butter balls I bought, however, are put up. I don't think I have enough to share.
