every time we see Jamie's grandpa (the boys' great-grandpa) and nana, his grandpa usually hands me or Jamie a white box with a stamp on it that says
clarke's homestyle bakery
and inside are usually a few sugar cookies and always two chocolate chip cookies on sticks complete with happy faces iced on.
i usually try to limit the amount of sugar my kids eat if i possibly can, but i always save these "popsicle cookies" for them. it's a sweet gesture from jamie's otherwise stoic grandfather that shows his love and delight in his great-grandsons.
so i gladly indulge his sweetness and let the boys join in too.
