What would cookies be without sprinkles? He sprinkled them all. We left them to harden on my rack. He had enough to sample...what with drips and crumbs and sticky fingers.
We stacked them in a foil pan and got them ready for him to take home. What a good time we had with little mess. We watched more Olympics...snowboarding was on and then got ready for an early dinner. He laughed at the time for dinner....Joe and I eat dinner around 3 and have a snack at night...unusual for this kid. After cleanup Collin and I went downstairs and got my gardening supplies ready for indoor seed planting. He advised me on using the pots with compressed peat. He said that they took him forever to absorb water, so he broke them up. It took a long time to get them moistened. We planted a tray of perennials and my geraniums. It was too early to do any of the others. It was a very relaxed day...he could do what he wanted, he had all of our attention, no cell phones, or other electronics. I really think that it's good for kids to get away from their siblings and be the "only child" if only for the day.
