My Cookie Monster

    Newer Older

    When my mom used to dish out ice cream, my brother, sister, and I would stand at the counter, hanging our faces on the edge and chanting "Lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots..." I'm not sure why, but it's like a running joke in the family now. My mom didn't think it was so funny then.

    She'd be happy to know, then, that while I'm baking cookies, David's hanging at my hip, asking "Are the cookies ready? Are they ready now? Now? Now? Now? Now? Now? Now? Now? Now? Now? Now? Now? Now? Now? Now? Now? Now? Now? Now? Now? Now?"

    Blogged here.

      When I first saw the small version, I thought he was reaching for a snake.

      Thanks, everyone! The cookies are indeed good. Or I should say were, as only a few remain now. I shall choose to take that as a compliment, even though six-year-olds scarf down cookies pretty much without exception.

      He would have been just as happy if he had been reaching for a snake. That's my kid.

      I want one of those cookies. You can never have too many chocolate chips! Great Shot, you can see the "yummy" anticipation.
