|Here's my trooper. I told him he could sit on the bench while I paid for our groceries.|
And also because I'd like to remember the conversation that we had on our way home, I'm writing it down here.
Me: "Did we remember to buy the things that you like?" (He wanted to go to the grocery with me to make sure that I'd buy his usuals.) "Did we get Yakult?"
Malik: "Check! How about Dutch Mill?"
Me: "Check! How about Yogurt?"
Malik: "Check! How about Stick-o?"
Later that night -
Pao: "Did you have fun today, Malik? Are you happy?"
Malik: "Yes. I went to the supermarket. Check! And to the mall. Check!"
