The Gingerbread Man, A classic folk tale
TIME: 9:01 PM
Today I realized that we hadn’t baked any Christmas cookies yet. And Christmas is only 3 days away. – yikes. So I made up some gingerbread dough and had “help” making cookies. I wish I had more patience when it comes to making cut-out cookies with the kids. It frustrates me when they don’t maximize the cookie cutter placement on the rolled dough. Then, I get annoyed with myself for being so anal about something that in the scheme of things, is truly not important. It’s a vicious circle. So tonight, I changed my tactic. I cut out 3/4 of the cookies, then let SD go to town on the remainder while I cleaned up the kitchen. This worked out well, she was happy and my frustration level was almost non-existent. Everyone was a winner!
