With both older kids gone last night, we found ourselves with a youngest who, while happy to have Mom and Dad’s undivided attention, was feeling disappointed that her friend couldn’t come visit and a little bored. It sounded like the perfect time to bake some chocolate chip cookies together.

I’m very much a control freak, but I fought back the urge and let Megan do most of the cookie-making on her own. Her favorite part was wielding the mixer.

She did desert me during the actual baking time since her favorite show was on TV.

I think I handled that part well enough though. There’s nothing like fresh chocolate chip cookies, warm from the oven.
