They’re here…the terrible twos.
The past few weeks we’ve seen glimpses of them, but I think it’s safe to say they are unpacking their bags and moving in. And may I add, a few months too early..fun times, fun times.
After a day of constantly being told “no” and having to deal with the dead weight drop to the floor shenanigans, I needed to end the day on a sweet note. So, I baked cookies.
These are called cookies however, they are mainly sweet potatoes and almond butter, two superfoods in my book! Therefore, I’m considering these medicinal!
