i made sugar cookies with ava last week. this makes me a cool mom. despite the fact that seth was cranky and didn't really let me give ava the cookie making attention she needed, it still went well. ava used the cookie cutters, i helped peel the shape off the board and she tossed it carelessly on to the cookie sheet. nothing resembled itself. she didn't care.
ps. the rainbow chip frosting from betty crocker was tried because a super-baking friend of mine has an obsession with it. she has a right to be obsessed. it has enough sugar to lift your eyebrows right off your face, but it is delicious!
