Our Cookie Monster


Yeah, so, we all have our favorite food that makes us really happy.

Mine is a burrito. Man oh man, I love burritos. I would eat a burrito for every meal if I thought it wouldn’t make me a massive fatty before killing me.

The Kid has quite a few favorites. He likes crunchy things, and he really has no interest in candy. All of his Halloween candy was eaten by mighty, mighty good man David. The big favorites are popcorn, graham crackers and Cheerios. But the top, #1 favorite that makes Calvin really freak out and earns the biggest smile is a cookie.

Lately, David has been placing a cookie in an unexpected spot for Calvin to accidentally come across. It’s really funny to us every time. EVERY TIME. Sometimes David hides it in a little toy car; sometimes it’s sitting on Calvin’s favorite book; sometimes David just puts it on Calvin’s plate when he’s not looking. “OH MY GOD! You have a magic plate.”

Calvin has this awesome reaction every time. He gasps and points at it, “It’s a COOKIE!” The smile couldn’t be any bigger. Then he picks it up and he smells it like he is really going to savor this.

As long-time readers of The Sonia Show know, Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. Why? Because any holiday that’s all about eating and drinking and I don’t have to buy gifts is pretty OK in my book.

One of my new favorite Thanksgiving traditions is watching the Thanksgiving parade with David. I love the Thanksgiving parade. It’s cheesy and ridiculous, which is why it’s awesome. David thinks it’s cheesy and ridiculous, and he hates it. So, check out my Twitter for random comments from David about the Thanksgiving parade. They are the best.

Happy Thanksgiving, you guys!

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.

  1. Sonia, I know exactly what you mean here! My son would gobble them down as fast as I’d give them to him (if I only let him eat that many). Great post!

Leave a comment, you guys. It's fun!
