I had this amazing plan that Ellie Bear and I would decorate Christmas cookies. It was foul proof. I say this because I bought a kit from Target. I didn't attempt to bake and the kit came with icing and sprinkles.
As with most things when a preschooler is involved, it did not go as planned. First off, Bear pitched a fit because she did not want the star cookie. She wanted the snowman. Mom, read my mind!
Then she pitched a fit when I put a little bit of fluffy white icing onto the snowman cookie. NOOOO!
Then she pitched an even bigger fit when I added the rainbow-colored sprinkles Clearly the world was ending.
Chunk-A-Love grabbed the plastic knife and the icing container and went to town.
Apparently, I was doing it all wrong. Of course one is meant to consume the icing directly from the container with a knife. My child is a genius.
