This… is cookie frog

without comments

I’m not sure how many of you have heard the stories about cookie frog (a name dreamed up by Sam for the little plastic frog he acquired from… somewhere)

For a month or two cookie frog did almost everything with sam; ate meals, took naps, played with toys. The one thing he didn’t do was go to bed at night with Sam, because cookie frog needed to sleep in his cave (which was a lantern shaped candle holder in our bedroom). Every night Sam would bring cookie frog in and put him to bed in his “cave”. Somewhere along the way cookie frog was misplaced and, though not forgotten, wasn’t as vital a part of Sam’s day.

A week or two ago Alicia found cookie frog again, under the sofa, and he is once again a near constant companion. The other morning when Sam and Grace got up there was this exchange about the beloved toy.

Sam (after retrieving cookie frog from his cave): Cookie frog needs to rest before he gets up this morning, so I’ll just hold him.

Grace: Ohhh cookie fwog sick?

Sam: No Grace! He’s not SICK. He’s just a TOY!
