"Do it again, Mamaw, Do it again!" I was laughing so hard at that point that I could not have done anything else, much less repeating that.
It all started when I had a real "grandmother moment" and felt I should be baking cookies with my four grandchildren. At that time they were ages six through nine. We gathered all of the necessary ingredients and placed everything in perfect order on the counter to begin our work. The older children also "helped" by reading aloud the recipe. Things were mixed and measured with meticulous care making sure that everyone had an equal part in the procedure. Of course, we were baking chocolate chip cookies and the much anticipated moment had arrived to add the chips. Everyone knew that even though the chips were going into the batter there would still be a few extra to munch on.
You can probably see what is coming. I picked up the bag and for some unknown reason (it must have been their prayers), I decided to pull apart the bag instead of cutting it open. The bag broke open and at least half of them "showered" onto the floor. Those four children moved so fast like little ants on a picnic and were on their hands and knees eating the chips. I was laughing so hard that I could not stop them. With four children running around I was sure the floor was not clean enough to eat off of.
Upon stuffing the last chip in their mouth, they exclaimed, "Do it again, Mamaw, Do it again!"
Thank you God for those precious children and the times I can share with them.
This is a personal true story!
