Like candy from a baby

Like candy from a baby


We went to my half-sister’s high school graduation party. It was a nice time and I got to see my aunts and uncles. Plus there was the usual fare including cakes and pastries. Isabella was especially partial to the chocolate cupcakes and so I cut one in quarters for her and put it on her plate.

An elderly lady, an in-law of my dad’s I think, came over to marvel at Isabella and how cute she is. (Who could blame her?) And as adults often do, she played with the standard toddler possessiveness by asking Bella, “Can I have some of your cupcake?”

I think she was quite surprised when Isabella handed her some, quite readily.

I know I was surprised when the woman thanked her and walked off with it on her plate. Yes, she took the little girl’s cupcake. Who does that?
