I can read him like a cookbook

I decided that Bug and I should make cookies today. I've got the "Bakin' Without Eggs" cookbook and figured I would make cookies before I try egg-free cupcakes tomorrow for Bug's little birthday gathering. (Fingers crossed...the kitchen and I are often at odds with one another.)

I was so happy to find chocolate chips that are made in a facility that's peanut-free that I decided to make something chocolatey. So...Bug tried his first chocolate chips today and it was love at first bite as I'm sure it was for me so many years ago. Shortly after that we had the following conversation:

Bug: Mommy, you're skinny.
Me: Hmmmmm.
Bug: Mommy, you're funny, too.
Me: Bug, do you want something?
Bug: Of course...[verrrrrrrry long pause] I want more chocolate chips.


  1. He does have a way with words! I would give him more chocolate chips!

  2. That child is brilliant, and is going to give you a run for your money!
    Batten down the hatches!

  3. Now that's a smart cookie! Hope you had a blast baking for him!

  4. Every time you talk about Bug I wanna give him a hug!!! Happy Birthday to Bug. :)

  5. Ha! They learn so young how to work us over!
