Who Stole the Cookies?

We were teaching Angel and the babies about stealing cookies.

Our whole family sat in a circle (the bigger boys were good sports... perhaps bribery was involved), and Ben started.  "Chris stole the cookies from the cookie jar!"

Chris good-naturedly responded, "Who, me?"
"Yes, you."
"Not me!"
"Then who?"
And it was Chris's turn to accuse David of stealing the cookies.  We went a full round, and Eddie accused Angel of being the thief.

"Angel stole the cookies from the cookie jar!"  Ben was holding her on his lap, and was prepared to coach her through the chant.  But she was too fast.  In her best that's-just-the-way-it-is voice, she proclaimed, "Yes I did!"

Well.  The game erupted in giggles, and that was the end of it.
