It’s Friday, and I could use a cookie. Anyone else with me?

I know my girl is. Look at that face. I couldn’t even stop her from going right for the flour/oatmeal/baking soda mix. She’s determined.


Oh while we’re on the subject (not)…did you hear? My beloved bumbo seat was recalled? Something about it being unsafe to set on counters.

I looked up what I needed to do to make it safe, and the company told me (on their website) that I should send off for their recall kit.


What’s a recall kit?

Don’t worry, I looked that up, too. It’s basically a seatbelt and a sticker that you put on your bumbo seat that says don’t put this seat on the kitchen counter while you’re making skillet cookies with your wiggly one-year-old daughter.

Or something like that.


Oh, thanks recall kit. But I think we’re going to take our chances. I mean, how else is a one-year-old supposed to make a big perfectly chewy skillet oatmeal cookie on Friday with her mama?



How else is this face supposed to occur in life, if not for the bumbo seat on the counter?


Maybe I should send them  a warm, gooey oatmeal skillet cookie with a picture of the above face and then send them eighty links to this blog that feature my baby in a bumbo seat on the counter.

Maybe they’ll recall the recall when they see how dang useful it’s been to me.

But until then, just know we’re safe and sound…on the counter, eating big slices of skillet cookie.
