I just had a moment. You know those times where you just feel all warm and fuzzy inside? It can happen for a number of different reasons but this one was a parenting moment. It made all of the hard work and home made cooking pay off. It only lasted a moment but it’ll keep me kneading and whisking and walking around with flour on my clothes for a good while!
My son has a friend over. As I look out the kitchen window I can see them jumping off the edge of the trampoline with open umbrellas, a la mary poppins, to see if they can sail down. That’s almost cause for another moment but I’ll get to the point.
Not 5 minutes ago my son came running in with his friend and said, “Mom! Do we have any cookies?” I always have a stash in the freezer so I told them to give me a few minutes and I’d get some out. As they were walking back out the patio door I saw my son lean over to his friend and state, “You have to have one of my mom’s cookies. She makes the best cookies in the world.”
I’m feeling a tiny bit giddy! Off to get the cookies out….
