Selflessness



I just wanted to comment on a seemingly insignificant moment that spoke volumes to a sappy-sentimental dad like myself. We, for whatever reason, got on the subject of whoopie pies, which are a cross between cupcakes and sandwich cookies. They're awesome, and fairly easy to make.

Anyway, during the discussion, the proverbial disagreement ensued, with A choosing vanilla, and N wanting chocolate. It's enough to make your head spin. I told them we couldn't make both, and they had to come to a consensus on the flavor. They decided to do rock-scissor-paper, and A ended up winning. So it was her right to choose vanilla.

Well, after a moment of thought, she said she'd like chocolate, just for N's sake. It brought a tear to my eye. I hope he realizes what a great sister he has. And, of course, now I'm going to have to make BOTH chocolate and vanilla. Oh well, what are you going to do?

Until the next time, thanks for reading.
