I’ve had quite a few people ask “How do you have the time to make all those cookies!?” I guess I don’t really think about it – I come home from work and I make cookies. Sometimes I stay up late to make cookies, but most times we work on them right after we’ve had dinner, or on the weekends. Which really leaves the only challenge of keeping Averie from sneaking the cookies and knocking them off the counter…
The good news is that Averie loves cookies. She loves helping make cookies and loves doing her own. In fact, when we had our first cookie-free night in quite some time last week and I asked what she wanted to do her response was: “Well, can we make cookies?” (I did redirect her to something else…)
Even more good news is that our methods of using squeeze bottles make it super easy for her to get involved. And the other good news? I’ve learned to put her cookies into deeper baking dishes — she doesn’t like to go ‘light’ on either the icing or the sprinkles! I think I’ll be vacuuming sprinkles up off the floor for the next 10 years after letting her do them on the table itself. I don’t understand where those things hide or how they randomly resurface!!
I’m kind of excited to see how she comes along in her cookie decorating skills too!
We weren’t kidding when we named our business A Cookie FAMILY. We all get involved! Which is great, because if she didn’t enjoy spending time with us while we worked on cookies, we would have far less time to spend ‘cookie-ing’!
