For the last few weeks, every time we’ve been in the grocery store, we’ve seen Cardinals cakes, cookies, and cupcakes. Of course, these caught the children’s eye every time they saw them, especially the giant cookies the size of a pizza. I told them that when the Cards won the pennant, I’d buy them one of the decorated cookies.
I almost forgot, even though I had been thinking about it before the game yesterday. But when we stopped at Schnucks today, the children proved that their memories are much better than mine, because they certainly hadn’t forgotten! As soon as they brought it to my attention, I remembered, and now the Carlos Beltran cookie has been a delicious promise kept!
