The boys asked yesterday if we could make chocolate chip cookies today. Since I’m going to be gone for the weekend, I told them it sounded like a wonderful idea—Daddy and Tori love chocolate chip cookies! So imagine my surprise this morning over this conversation:
Ryan: Can I play XBox?
Mom: Umm…as soon as I start the washing machine we’re going to make cookies. You’re going to help, right?
Ryan: Mom, I don’t want to help.
Mom: Not at all?
Ryan: Well, not with this part. I want to help. Can I do the ‘after-the-oven’ part?
Mom: The ‘after-the-oven’ part?
Ryan (with a HUGE grin): Yep. The part where you EAT THEM!
Goofball! I laughed so hard… Now he’s playing XBox and I’m ready to bake cookies with my ‘before-the-oven’ helper.
