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.

  1. Well, at least someone helped you! I'm with Ryan, though - I like the after-the-oven part best. :)
