Cookies!




In an effort to curb my OCD (which if you asked my husband, it's non-existent), I tried baking cookies with Ethan today.  Phew.  Ok, how do these little susie homemakers do it?  I always see it on reality shows about parenting, kids making cookies with their moms and it always looks like loads of fun.  Is something wrong with me?  It took a lot (and I mean a lot) of effort to refrain from ripping the spoon out of his hand and just doing it myself.  But I kept telling myself, "It's not about the cookies, it's about spending quality time with my son."  So besides the little bout of anxiety, I think it turned out to be a memorable moment.

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who thinks those moms are delusional!
