I Thought He Was So Sweet

For Pierce's 7th birthday, I took him to the rollerskating rink for the first time, which was a lot of fun.  On the way home, we stopped by Barnes and Noble to get the free cupcake he received for being a member of their kid's club.

On the drive home, Pierce told me that he loved me so much, and thanked me for taking him skating.  He said he'd had the best birthday ever.  That kid sure knows how to butter up his mom.  Then, he announced that he was saving half of his cupcake for me.  I said, "That's really thoughtful and sweet of you, but it's your birthday, so you should eat it".  Oh no, he told me, he was saving it for me.

I drove home with warm thoughts of the kid who would save half of his birthday cupcake for his mother.  Until I got home.  And he handed me this:

Hmmm.  I guess it's the thought that counts, right?

Carrie took the topping off a cookie and gave me the bottom and told her mother that I wouldn't notice and she is in the 10th grade. It was slightly obvious.
