Baking cookies is one of my favourite things to make with my kids. Letting them take control is hard at the start as my anxiety of perfection kicks in but I just have to let that go for this time. The smiles and excitement  when they are measuring the ingredients, pouring and mixing makes me realise I’m giving them life long lessons and memories that they are not even aware of yet.

Not to forget the best part for them not necessarily me as I am a clean freak, getting their hands dirty and having imperfect shapes and sizes to my dismay and cant help myself to fix a few odd ones here and there.

As we wait for the them to bake the clean up begins not surprising they have bolted in need of a bathroom break then disappeared into space for this part of the fun can’t blame them.

Once the cookies are done the excitement and anticipation on their little faces melts my heart to jelly, to them seeing their creations is one of the most rewarding moments, the bursting of  confidence streams through and the look of accomplishment as they take a bite of what they have just made makes it all worth the mess.

Now to keep their cheeky fingers out of the cookie jar will be another wishful task..
