The week before Christmas brake, Noah and his classmates had a gingerbread week. They made a gingerbread house and they learned the story of the Gingerbread Man and had Gingerbread Man cookies. So, when I got groceries and was trying to think of things to do with Noah over the break, I got some of those pre-rolled out gingerbread cookie dough packages and some cookie frosting.
Of course, with all the sickness, we hadn't gotten around to making them yet and last night he saw the frosting in the pantry and was ready. I told him we'd do it tomorrow.
When he woke up this morning, and Ching came up here to get him to pee and get dressed, as usual, he wanted no such thing. Sigh. He wanted to make the cookies.
I came up thinking I'd be reinforcement, and he pointed at me and said, "YOU SAID."
I told him, "You're right. I did say we'd do the cookies today. You just have to get dressed first."
So that's what we did.
