Baby Brother, Cookies! and Flour!

Its July 8,  2012 and I've been at the Maloney's home since June 25. Their unborn son has decided to take up permanent residence since his due date was June 26.  We thought maybe he decided to come July 4. No, he decided to stay in his mother's womb constantly pushing for more room and keeping her awake 24 hours a day. Meanwhile his big sister still rules the household.  Today we need cookies! The favorite in this house is Chocolate Chip Oatmeal.  So the only way to accomplish this feat, is to occupy wild child, I mean Vivian, my 2 yr old granddaughter.  A metal bowl with about 1/4 cup of flour and a big spatula was set on her Dora table and with that she was told to help Grandma stir. So about 2 hours and 30 min later we had cookie dough. There was flour on Vivian's face, shirt, arms, lets just say her entire body and at least 1/4 of the kitchen.  Little flour foot prints on the floor were the best.  Second best is when she threw up her hands after making all those designs through the flour on her Dora table and said; "Beautiful!" You see how much doll making I'm getting done? Ha! But when I do, I can sit back and think about some wonderful memories. Thanks and find great joy doing something-maybe with a little flour?
