Jolly Rancher

I had the best weekend that started Friday eve. with a pizza / babysitting party at my moms.  I do a lot of babysitting at her house for Steph's kids because of dog allergies that Gray has when he stays too long at my house, and it gives my mom company and she gets to be with the kids and enjoy the festivities without leaving her lazy boy chair.  After dinner, Noah & Ivy went with me to Dairy Dip to pick up dessert.  When we got in the van, on the way, Noah, all smiles asked me if I liked Jolly Rancher candies.  Of course I said yes.  He pulled one out of his pocket and said "Here Mimi, I want you to have this Jolly Rancher"  He put it in my little tray by my cup holder and I told him that will be refreshing on my way home from work on Monday.  His smile was as big as ever.  He was so proud to give me something that I liked.  On the way, I handed him a $20 to hold for our ice cream.  Now, he was only sitting in his seat next to me and the trip was only about 1 mile away.  When I ordered and went to pay, he said he couldn't find the money.  He searched all his pockets and finally found it in the last of about 5 pockets.  I said "Noah, how do you manage to lose money sitting still in a seat for a few minutes"  He giggled.  I love this little guy.  He brings so much Joy to my world.  I will enjoy my jolly rancher on my way home today and think of Noah....
