It's already been over two weeks since I've had my daughter Chloe, but any time I log onto Facebook it seems like every other couple I know on Facebook is having a baby also!  But what I like to remind those parents, new or otherwise, is that if they're giving birth through Methodist at Mayo Clinic, then they need to take advantage of scoring themselves a delicious snack next door from the hospital at Jimmy John's.

It was brought to my attention from several nurses and doctors that if you show anyone inside the fast food joint proof of having a baby (stamped footprints, hospital bracelet, etc...) they'll hook you up with a FREE cookie!

I'm not sure how long they've been doing this wonderful gesture, but I did take advantage of this almost three years ago after I had Charlee as well.

It was such a cool feeling to have the whole place erupt with cheers and applause, both from staff and customers after I proudly showed off my daughter's fresh footprints on my arm. Sure, it might just be a small cookie, but it also shows they care enough to recognize such a large milestone in our lives also. Plus, if I'm being honest, they're some damn tasty cookies and worth the exercise to walk over there to get one after sitting in a hospital room forever.

And just for the record, both times I offered up my free cookie to my wife... because let's be real, she deserved them more than me for the rock-star that she is :)
