Didn’t I Blow Your Mind This Time?

Until last week, Sam had gone his entire life refusing to eat cookies. He might have eaten one when he was much smaller, but from age two onward he definitely had not touched so much as one cookie.

Imagine my surprise when he decided that COOKIES! ARE! GREAT! and ate half of MY reward cookies.

As happens with store-bought cookies, we ran out. And we were sad. And today Sam asked for a cookie and I said we could make some. He got really excited but since I have not made cookies since his boycott began, I’m not sure he really understands. He did grab his apron and put it on, though he immediately took it back off.

I just can’t wait until he sees that we made cookies.

    Verdict: he was pretty excited, but somewhat underwhelmed by the cookies themselves. I’m not sure if he didn’t like them at all or was just put off by some of the still-soft chocolate getting on his fingers. We’ll try sugar cookies next.

    Sugar cookies are my favorite.

    Wait, what cookies did you get? The store-bought ones, I mean. I gotta know what swayed Sam to the dark side.

    Side note: I don’t like cookies much, but I miss baking them.

    Trader Joe’s maple leaf sandwich cookies and pfeffernüsse.

    So I’ve been spending all this time catching up on your blog and enjoying it and wish I was more on the ball and… what I am really walking away from this internet visit with: GOD I WANT COOKIES SO BAD.
    Curse you.
