Valentine's Cookies

Good morning and Happy Monday!

Dan and Ina slept in yesterday, which meant I had the luxury of cooking myself an omelet. Unforunately, I didn’t have the luxury of eating it. As soon as the first bite hit my lips I heard, “Mooommm!” I grabbed the plate to climb the stairs and Ina took one look and said, “Mmmm, that looks yummy!"

What’s mine is your’s kid.

The rest of the day went by extremely fast - church, grocery shopping nap time, then getting the house ready for small group. Ina received a Valentine’s Day present that included an apron and a Valentine’s Day cookie baking kit. I mixed, rolled, and baked the sugar cookies during her nap and bribed her to pick up all her toys with the reward of cookie decorating.

As she was decorating the cookies, I tried to explain to her that we were making Valentine’s Day cookies and Valentine’s Day is meant to celebrate love and friendship. I then asked her if there was anyone she could think of that she loved that we should give the cookies to.

Without hesitation, she yelled, “ME!” and grabbed a cookie and shoved it in her mouth.

Even though her reaction was somewhat selfish, she was happy to see everyone at small group enjoy her treats, so maybe she understood the point through example instead of explanation?


Have a great Monday!
