I thought it would be fun for Brendan if we made cookies together and then decorated them.  It’s one of those things as a stay-at-home mom that I kind of feel obligated to do.  Since I’m not much of a baker, we used cookie mix from a box (Hey, I added eggs and butter!) and as you can see in this video, icing that wasn’t exactly homemade but that didn’t make them any less irresistable!


This is the video (shot yesterday) that inspired me to start a blog.  I ran out of memory in the middle so you can’t see the extent of the damage but I think you can get an idea.

I’ve been thinking about starting a blog for a while now but I didn’t think I could keep up.  Now that my oldest son is smack dab in the middle of the ‘terrible twos’ I figure I don’t really need to write much.  Most of what I want to record are videos of those mischievous moments that make me want to pull my hair out now but will make me laugh for years to come.  When I take the time to take video it’s like counting to ten…  It gives me a chance to calm down and put things into perspective.  I also want to document some of the things that he says that make it oh-so-hard to keep a straight face.  Things that only a small child could have the sheer brilliance to come up with.

Since my youngest is only nine months I’ll just post cute pics of him for now.
