When you are a homeschooler, if it also a fun way to do math, science, following instructions, reading and so much more.
On this day we also learned the art of compromise. I don't do chocolate well (my current health stuff negates chocolate) and my boy LOVES chocolate (as does his dad).
So we make oatmeal raisin cookies, but half of them became oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.
Mom... How much chocolate can I add?
Oh... until it looks enough. :) Was my response.
He thought that funny and had a blast. They were very chocolatey. :)
Chocolate chip cookies for one boy and his dad. me... I get to enjoy the oatmeal raisin. Next time though I think we'll work on the fraction 2/3. I don't need to eat half of cookies recipe and only leave 1/4 each for the two fellows. Might as well make it more fair all round eh?
What do YOU think? :)
