Birth of a Baker and the Cookie Takers
My youngest daughter (10 years old) has been bitten by the baking bug. She's been wanting to bake easy cookie recipes all the sudden.
Yesterday, I allowed her to bake some, with the assistance of her older sister.
As soon as these cookies were cooled, they dissappeared. I asked her what she did with them.
"I'm hiding them so they won't eat them all."
Later in the afternoon, I saw her eating one. Then later, another. I asked her, "Did you hide those so you could eat them all?"
Just about dinner time, she was walking around the house trying to sell them to her sisters for $1.00 a piece. Her brother was at work. I got a giggle out of this.
Her sister's were not paying for cookies, tackled her, and stole them from her.
In the end, everyone did get a few cookies.
