Patience is a Virtue
Monday, February 27, 2006

There is a little plaque that hangs in my kitchen and it says "God grant me patience and I want it right NOW!".

This pretty much sums me up in one fell swoop. So add into this equation one ten year old boy who wants to learn to make cookies for his oral book report.

It involved a lot of teeth gritting on my part, exasperated "oh mom" on his part and a good hour of clean up time after(you try cleaning cookie dough off the ceiling quickly..dare ya).

Happily there were no burns, cuts, or bruised feelings by the time it was over.

I declare this little home economics lesson a success since I don't think I left him with any emotional scarring, although my teeth might never be the same again...

Too funny. Be glad that your little man didn't decide it would be a great "surprise" for his mom to make her some cookies "all by himself". Bet you wouldn't want that clean up or the slightly over done cookies (can you say dangerous projectile missles when thrown at the garbage can?)
