When Does That Whole Meticulously-Decorated Thing Kick In? Post author:Debbie Koenig Post published:December 14, 2010 Post category:Parenting Post comments:4 Comments Welcome! I no longer update this blog, but I do write a free weekly meal-planning newsletter for families (especially families with kids as picky as mine). It's called The Family Plan. Please subscribe! Four-year-olds, it seems, aren’t much more interested in precision than two-year-olds. I don’t think they minded.

Then I remind myself, that it's going to be eaten anyway!xoxoLila Ferraro debbie koenig 14 Dec 2010 Reply Yup! Every time I gasped at the vast pile of colored sugar being dumped onto a cookie, I forced myself to turn it into a shrug. Or at least I hope I did. Liz 14 Dec 2010 Reply I think these cookies are fabulous! And very understated, compared with my children's efforts, for whom more is most definitely more! Wish I could attach a pic of last year's lurid efforts! this year we've only made one batch so far… and they got eaten before we even had chance to ice them!! sarah henry 19 Dec 2010 Reply in some cases, it doesn't: my 12-year-old came home with a gingerbread house he'd made…he told me it had been hit by a hurricane;) Leave a Reply to Liz Cancel replyCommentEnter your name or username to comment Enter your email address to comment Enter your website URL (optional) Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
