Griff and I made cookies on Sunday. I altered an apple sauce recipe that we made last year. The alterations made them better, in my opinion anyway. Once they were out of the oven and cooled off, Griff enjoyed one. Well, at least he looked as though he enjoyed it. I asked if he wanted another. He politely responded, “No thank you,” he was ready to get down and play. It was odd, but didn’t think much of it. Later that evening, my dear husband took a few bites of a cookie. He asked if it was another one of my “healthy creations?” I responded, yes, aren’t they good! To which he said, “I don’t really care for them” and left the remainder of the cookie on the counter. The following day at lunchtime, Griff devoured his lunch. I was so proud and said, “Wow, that was fast! Do you want a cookie for dessert?” He turned away and said “No thank you, I am full.” What? He didn’t want a cookie? So I quickly asked “Griff, do you not like the cookies?” he just looked at me, like a deer in headlights (I know this look well from his Father). “It’s okay Griffin, you can tell me.” He shyly muttered “Mommy, I don’t really like the cookies.” I broke out laughing. He just looked at me in shock, I think worried that he might offend me by his admission. “It’s okay,” I said “Daddy didn’t like them either.” His face lighted up. “Oh good!” He cheered, “Does this mean we can make real cookies now?”
Sure kid. Sure. I do have the recipe if anyone IS interested. Although, I don’t believe this story is the best way to market my healthy baked goods! Let me know if you want it, and I can post it!
