There are times I think we are making progress in treating our family with kindness, and other times I think we've made absolutely none. Tonight when we were making chocolate chip cookies, Ryan took the beater off the KitchenAid mixer and offered it to Annie and Maddie. Maddie was in the kitchen, and Annie was slightly further away in the family room. Maddie was to Dad in about a step and a half and declared, "Annie doesn't like chocolate chip cookies," while grabbing the beater in her greedy little hands. Annie was in hearing range and was outraged, "I do too like cookies!"
Anything I've ever said about my twins looking out for each other is a lie. They are happy to throw each other under a bus if it means getting cookie dough.
