Oh the passionate intensity of a two year old who knows exactly what she wants and in this case Sophie has seen someone else in the park with a chocolate covered cookie and she WANTS A COOKIE. She wants a cookie so much she starts to yell and scream and kick her feet and the entire world starts to spin around and around. The force of the wanting is enormous. Then, just like a storm that has used up all its fury, Sophie runs out of all her cookie wanting and stops yelling. She gets up, finds her blanket and goes home to take a much needed nap. At dinnertime she eats everything on her plate and then gets a cookie. She likes cookies. Yes, we know!
