One of my 5 year olds informed me yesterday he wanted to make cookies and proceeded to dictate the recipe to me.
"I want to make chocolate cookies. We put in chocolate chips, then all the stuff for peanut butter chews, and then 1 tomato, 2 pieces of ice, 3 pieces of butter, and 1 piece of peanut butter on a bread. We mix that up and then there's more.
"We have to put 1 cup...I mean one piece of M&Ms and 3 pieces of cheezits, and 3 cans of beans. One more thing: we have to put one oreo in the cookies. That's all the stuff.
"We can make it whenever we want...even right now!"
Do you ever wish you could just freeze your kids in time and just keep them at that age forever?
Sigh. I do.
(Don't worry, I also have the kind of days I am afraid they will never outgrow a certain age and/or stage.)
But today, I wish I could just always keep them little.
