filching his grandmother's coffee, 18 months
We moved in with my parents for a short time after we returned to the States. Every morning my mother would take Sam out into the back yard before we all got ready for work and sitter. While I fed the baby, Sam and Momma would knock around back there. On a couple of occasions he sneaked her coffee while she was pulling a weed or fussing at the dog.
To prevent this, she started making him hot chocolate in a little sippy cup each morning before she poured her first mug. He is, not to put too fine a point on it, her heart.
