9.27.2021: Google very recently changed drive links for security reasons, so you may find that when you click on a link for one of my printables that you need to submit a share request. PLEASE only submit one share request per item! These have to be manually confirmed and I will get to them when I get to them. I promise you that sending me 12 requests in rapid succession will not make that happen faster, lol! I do not sit on my computer waiting around to send people instant shares of freebies. Thank you so much for your patience as I try to sort out this latest Google mess.

The Difference Between the First and the Third

When David was about 2, every morning when he woke up he would ask for a cookie.

"Cookie? Cookie?"

And point to the cabinet where he knew I kept them.

They were just those non-Oreo cookies. You know the kind I mean.

And I would give him a cookie. He'd smile and eat the cookie. And never ask for another cookie until the next morning, when we would start the new day with the same ritual.

Peter (almost 5): "Can I have a cookie, pwease?"

Mama: "Sure, here you go."

Peter: "Now some milk."

Mama: "That's not how you ask."

Peter: "Some milk, pweease!"

Mama: "Try again."

Peter: "Pweease, can I pweease have some milk pweease?"

Mama: "Here's your milk."

Peter (licking his milk mustache): "Can I have a cookie, pwease?"
