What am I going to do in a few months when the new baby comes along and this little trouble maker is left to get into even more trouble?!?! He asked me for a cup of milk and I needed him to wait a minute. When I went into the kitchen to fill his cup, this is what I found him doing. While I should be upset with him, is it as obvious to you as it is to me that apparently, I have other children to are jug chuggers?  Imitation…..that is what this age is all about.

I must tell this little guy at least 20 times a day that it is lucky he is so cute. I have much more patience for misbehaving when my kids are little and so darn cute. I’m still working on the whole patience thing when it comes to my teenagers.

Even my kids who don’t like pineapple devoured these pineapple cookies. I should have made a double batch. My only suggestion for change would be to drizzle on the glaze instead of dipping them because it is a bit overwhelming covered in so much sugar.
