Chocolate Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies | I turn into Cookie Monster when we bake these... #cookies #oatmeal #recipe

Today, my daughter learned the meaning of the word, “Mooooooommmmm!”

She's been saying “mom” for a while, but not like this. Today, she learned that when she says it, I come.

Of course, today, I still think it's cute. I'm aware that the novelty of it will soon wear off (probably by tomorrow). But tonight, I still it's utterly heart melting. I'm still amazed anytime she says anything and understands the meaning behind it. So to grasp the concept of a word that means ME? Pretty fabulous.

So that was our game today. It went something like this:

“Mom? Mom? Mom? Mom? Mom? Mooommmmmmmmm?”


“Shoe on.”


I leave the room.

“Mom? Mom? Mom? Mom? Mom? Mom? Mom? Mom? Mom?”


“Dress on.”

“Ok. Yes, Belle looks very pretty in her dress.”

I leave the room.



“Shoe off.”

It was a nice part of my day. A little more physically active than I typically like to be (with all the ups and downs), but still nice to have that interaction with her ๐Ÿ™‚ .

Ok, so these cookies, right?

Let me put into words how incredible these are: they were meant to go elsewhere as a guest post. But I took one bite and knew they would have to stay here.

Frankly, I can't even bring myself to bake the rest of the dough, because I turn into Cookie Monster the moment these come out of the oven. (Thanks for all of your great cookie-dough-gift-giving suggestions by the way! I'll be putting them to good use ๐Ÿ™‚ )

Anyway. I hope you guys love these as much as we did over here!!
