Dear Noah.......you stayed home from school and group today..

You had a horrible time sleeping last night. I mean you were up and awake more than down and asleep. Of course since you ended up coming into my room this also meant I got little sleep last night.

I know for a fact if you do not get at least 9 hours of sleep at night...uninterrupted sleep.....you can be way too emotional the next day...with just about anything sending you off into tears or a semi-fit. SO......because your nose and cough and headache were still all acting up.....I let you stay home.

AND last night you wanted me to make homemade gingerbread cookies. I should have only made 1/2 recipe because I really only had about that much molasses for the cookies but we always add a little less anyway for your taste.....so I figured it would be enough. I also forgot exactly how much less spices we use because I know I do not add the full amount. Well..for some reason I decided to make the WHOLE recipe....and I added all the spices......and once they were baked and even I smelled them.....I thought to myself "there is no way he will like these or eat these!"

I put some in the freezer to ice later with icing as I got tired of making so many cookies all at one time. YOU are the only one eating them..I made WAY TOO MANY! WHY????

Because since I made them you had 3 last night....and that is it. Today you cried when I asked you to try one today because overnight they did get a much better taste and were softer. You then told me you did not really like homemade gingerbread cookies anymore....or at least the ones that did not have enough molasses. I told you we had made that kind before and you liked it. You just got so used to eating the Pillsbury ready-made gingerbread cookies....now you won't eat anything else.

This happens a lot....and now I am wondering what in the world am I going to do with all these cookies? You told me to throw them away. I will probably send some to grandma C's house if she would like a couple. Maybe I can put some on another plate to give some away to someone else. The rest will have to go somewhere as I try to avoid eating those types of foods and today..all I have done is pick at those cookies! I am SO SICK of cookies and the thought of them now makes me want to gag!!

sigh.........

here is a video snippet of you talking about your time machine you want to build so you can go back in the past and see toilets and doors in the former K-mart stores and other places.

I love you......hoping you feel better tomorrow!

Hello

I was reading your blog about having left over ginger bread cookies & you do not know what to do with them.

I happen to love eating ginger snap cookies & I would be happy to take them off of your hands for you, the thing is I live in another state and I'm not sure what it would cost to ship the cookies to me, but I would still be happy to eat them for you.

I would dislike to see the cookies be thrown in the trash can.
