“No more.” The little boy’s mother says after he eats four cookies.

His mother puts the remaining cookies in a glass jar and stores it in a cupboard.

Later that night the boy waits for his mom to fall asleep. At midnight he sneaks into the kitchen and opens the cupboard.

He sees the jar but there are no cookies inside it. There’s a folded note inside the jar.

The boy retrieves the note which reads: “Go back to sleep. Love, mom.”
