I am such an idiot

Rylan 001-A

My grandson came over, because he had a low grade fever and could not attend school. Rylan never fails to cheer me up.  I love him so much.  I keep telling him that he is my favorite grandson, because he is my ONLY grandson.

Anyway, Maria brought a small bag of cookies. Julia had made them the day before as part of a cooking contest at home with her younger brother.  The secret ingredient was peanut butter.  Rylan made a peanut butter dip for veggies, his very own recipe.  Julia made peanut butter cookies with chocolate chips.  I don’t remember who won.  But, Maria thought David and I would enjoy Julia’s cookies.

After lunch, I saw three cookies in the bag. I wondered why Maria had given us only three.  Why not four so that David would have two cookies and I would have two.  Well, I gave David one cookie and I ate the remaining two.  They were delicious.

As I was washing the lunch dishes, Rylan came up to me and asked, “Where are the cookies?”

Me: “Grandpa and I ate them.”

Rylan: “Oh, I thought one was for me.”

Me: “So, that’s why your mom gave us three cookies.  One was for me, one was for Grandpa, and one was for you.  I’m sorry, Rylan.  I didn’t know better.  I should have given you a cookie.”

Rylan: “That’s okay, Grandma.  I had cookies yesterday.”

Me: “I am such an idiot, Rylan.  I am so sorry.”

Rylan walked away, and I finished washing the dishes.

Sometimes, I wonder where my brain is.

    That’s funny, Gigi. I’m sure you enjoyed it and it gave you some fodder for a post! 🙂

    I’m surprised you were able to devour those cookies without your grandson knowing you were eating them. My grandkids can hear cookies from two rooms away!

    Oh, You ate your grandson’s cookie…your favorite grandson to boot! My grandson would not have been so forgiving. LOL

    That is a cute story. Loved it! Cookies and children go together don’t they? My niece’s little girl loves her Grandma’s cookie jar.

    Cute story, Gigi, but I beg to differ with the post title because you are certainly NOT an idiot and Ryland would not begrudge you and David for eating the cookies.
