WW and Trying New Things: Breakfast Cookies

Since joining WW I've tried to go out of my comfort zone a little, forcing myself to try new things. One of those was trying new recipes. I have to say, this recipe from WW was really easy to make, was super fast in the oven, and tasted great. And as someone who hates eating breakfast, this was a fast and easy way to get some nutrients into my body early in the day (it paired really well with my coffee!). Bonus: it was gluten and dairy-free AND my kids loved it (probably because of the chocolate chips).

Homework Chronicles

Homework at our house is almost never quick, and it’s always painful. My daughter is in grade 2 and cries if she doesn’t get homework. My son, in grade 4, cries when he does get homework which unfortunately for him is like every fricken night.

It’s rare that I’m able to get both kids to sit down at the same time and do homework while I do the after-dinner cleanup…so you could imagine my surprise when I looked over and saw these two little hooligans side by side, not fighting, and helping each other with their homework.

I was swooning with love and affection.

Until.

Yup – I knew it was too good to be true.

Tyler: Mom can I watch tv?

Me: No, you’re not done your homework.

Tyler: It's ok, Adrianna said she would finish my homework because it’s just colouring and she can finish colouring my science title page.

HE LURED HER IN BECAUSE IT’S COLOURING SO IT’S LIKE HER FAVOURITE THING TO DO…OF COURSE, SHE’D SAY YES!

Needless to say, they were not too pleased with me for botching their plan…but I have to hand it to them for trying to work together to get what they want lol
