Today was a crafting and cookies kind of a day…a first for me.
The kids are home AGAIN due to snow ( hail, ice, black ice, rain, freezing rain, flurries)- It’s New England. Instead of tearing my hair out again I decided that a craft day was in order and so prepared our big wooden table with enough supplies to distract my children for as long as humanly possible. I also took on a fairly major project myself: I decided that I would bake cookies today – from scratch.
Let me say that again: from scratch.
The kids managed to keep themselves fairly busy while I proceeded to labor over the back of the Nestle Toll House Cookie directions on the back of the package. My kitchen looked like a big giant flour bomb exploded toward the end, and I somehow managed to eat roughly 1/3 of the dough before it even made it into the oven. Once the aroma hit the next room the kids ran in asking “what smells so good?!”
I proudly led them over to the oven for a peek inside. My daughter was especially pleased, and encouraged:
“That’s good mommy, but next time you need to work on your form.”
