Isn't great when your kids start to do things on their own? Baking cookies by themselves, what a great thing, they're so excited they can't wait to get them out of the oven. The yummy smell wafts through the house and everybody is dying to bite into one.
Hmmm... Reality check time. If you're not helping out the recipe is more of a guideline so if all of the ingredients get in that's pretty good, don't expect them to be properly combined. Forget about the size of the batter to be baked, why use an inch size ball when you've got enough for a couple baseball size drops. Baking time, forget about a timer, when they can no longer bare the suspense the cookie should be done. Then there's clean up, HELLO! There's never been a bigger mess in your kitchen and scarcer people to be found. BUT your child has taken a step towards independence and that's a good thing. At least you can comfort yourself with that thought.
