Things were getting a little dicey around here this afternoon. My girl was climbing the walls and so were her Daddy and I. She had already been to the park, woke up early from her nap and it was HOURS before dinner or bedtime! We try hard not to let her watch to much tv, and let me tell you, today would have been an easy day to relent on this.
Enter one jumbo canister of Oatmeal! My girl and I mixed up a batch of oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. She wore her apron from Kristin and Michael. It took a much longer time than if I did it myself (which was actually good because it kept her busy) It was much more messy (which made me mop the floor later!) and she loved it! We measured and mixed and poured and tasted the dough. She also played in the sink during cleanup time.
Later she got to have one of "her" cookies for dessert after dinner.
We have new neighbors that moved in today and we decided that we will bring these over to them tomorrow!
