When I was pregnant with my third child I had two other children that were age 4 and 2. I cannot recall how many people said something to the effect of "Boy you're going to be busy!" but it's certainly more than I could count off the top of my head.
However, I honestly have to say that having three under the age of 5 really wasn't that 'busy'. They were all little. They were easy to entertain. It was easy to pick up after them. I was a Mommy and wife but also found time to cook, clean, do laundry, run errands, do crafts and household project and repairs, pay the bills, do our taxes and even be the Daisy Girl Scout Leader. It was only after they hit the 9-4 year old group that life started to get busy. By the time I could say I had three kids ages 14-10 it was crazy-head-spinning-busy.
But yet... I still find time to cook, clean, do laundry, do projects, crafts, household repairs and decor and yes, do our taxes and plan vacations.
And I've learned over the years... never, ever be too busy to make your family cookies.
This week is yet another crazy, busy week but when I made the chocolate chocolate chip cookies last week I mixed up the cookie dough for sugar cookies at the same time and just wrapped it in Saran wrap and kept it in the refrigerator. Today or Sunday I hope to get our Annual Valentines Day cookies made... you know the ones; the ANTI-Valentine Day cookies that I'm becoming famous for. LOL.
Although I'm happily married and my daughter is happily dating her boyfriend of 1 & 1/2 years, we all love these cookies! She and my son hand them out to their friends on Valentine's Day and everyone gets a good laugh.
Do you need heart cookie cutters? Baking pans? Ingredients? Edible food color markers?
