If I carefully schedule everything at home and the office--we're talking 10 schedules--so that I can have one measly hour to write or go to yoga, fate (that brat) will intervene to remind me who is boss.
If I stay up late on Pinterest to find activities to dazzle my three-year-old son, he will be unimpressed. He will stare at me in disappointment when I present the color/number wheel game I made with matching clothespins. Pipe cleaners and finger paint will fail miserably, too. His thrill of the day will be when we pour baking soda and vinegar down a drain to unclog it.
The only sure thing...is that nothing is a sure thing
So, imagine my surprise when I discovered something that made everyone in my house smile. Strawberry cookies! My son loves how pretty and pink they are. I love how easy and tasty they are. Even my health nut husband ventured a nibble and said, "Those are some good cookies."
The best surprise of all was when I felt little arms surround me and heard, "Mommy, I love you."
Magic cookies. Thank you, Taste and Tell blog.
