She's Growing Up!

Tonight, as the boys were leaving for ball practice, Dancer was helping me make cookies. On a side note, we were making what is lovingly called in our house "dog poop cookies". I so wish I were kidding right now, but...well, there is A LOT of testosterone in the Tigerden. You probably know these as Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies or No Bake Cookies, but every time we make them, they end up looking like, well, piles of dog poop, and when you have this many boys under one roof, and the name is gross, it is gonna stick!

Anyway, we were making cookies and it got to a point where Dancer was no longer interested in helping because there was heat involved. She wandered into the living room where the boys had left the T.V. on. About a whopping two minutes later she came running back to the kitchen where the following conversation took place:

Dancer-"Momma, I wish you could see this show it is HIL-A-RI-OUS!

Me-"What is it?"

Dancer-" I don't know, but I have watched like half of it and it is like SO COOL!"

She figured out all this in two minutes! Where has my baby girl gone?

and those cookies do look like dog poop...but they are SO DANG GOOD! I WISH I HAD ONE...WAIT, I CAN'T HAVE ONE! My mom used to make them for me every once in a while...and I would come home from school and there would be a fresh batch of them made...OH MY WORD...dive into those things with a glass of milk...sometimes if they were still warm, you could just eat it with a spoon...and sometimes, I would like lick the inside of the cast iron skillet she made them in and clean that puppy, one of those things would be sooo good right now....I made them not long ago...I had a couple of them...not many, that was before I knew I had the "surgar" and I was still trying to cut back anyway, cause well I thought I might have the "surgar" so I had to give them away to my daughters and their kids so like I would be tempted to eat like 3, 10, or 20 of them.
Are they that good in your house too? Do you like them? How many do you eat when you make them?
Is this bothering you? Can you tell I REALLY WANT SOME OF THEM NOW? But my DAYS OF HAVING THEM ARE OVER! OVER...
