Yesterday was a cookie baking kind of day!
But don’t let this perfectly cute, instagram worthy picture fool you. I hate baking with my kids. Like, I’d rather fold 100 loads of laundry, or drink day old coffee, or give up dry shampoo or never wear leggings again (whoa now, that’s crazy talk 😂) than bake with my kids.
Because I hate it!! Yes! I said it!! I HATE it!
It starts out with good intentions and before you know it, there is a broken egg on the floor, flour everywhere, yelling, crying and spoonfuls of raw cookie dough being eaten by one stressed out mama (stress eating is my thing 🤣). Ok maybe eating raw cookie dough isn’t the worst thing in the world, but you get my point, right?
I’m well aware that my Type A, control freak, everything-has-to-be-perfect personality is to blame. But I just can’t!
I know that isn’t an excuse! I know that it’s the life skills created and the fond memories made and the quality time spent together that matters.
So today, when I really wanted to loose my ish after the egg shells fell into the bowl or when she poured a whole cup of flour into the mixer while it was on high speed (yes, it was a bad as you imagine 🤦🏻♀️) I kept my cool and we finished those damn cookies.
Because she loved every minute of it! And I’m not going to think about how long it’s gonna take me to clean up that flour!
Just keeping it real! You don’t have to love everything mamas!
