eat this instead

After many tears shed this morning for various reasons the girls and I retired to the kitchen to make some chocolate chip cookies, a good remedy for many things, cranky children and impatient mother alike. As I was beating together the ingredients one of them said to me with anticipation "Is it time for a licking yet?"

Well, hopefully we won't reach that point, but the dough will be ready for tasting as soon as I stir in the flour.

  1. One of the things I swore I'd never do as an adult is be the mom who scrapes the cookie dough off of the batter before letting my kids lick it. To me that seemed like the touchstone of Perfect Momhood.
