Oatmeal Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

I always see the cutest pictures of my friends making cookie with their little ones - babies covered in flour with a wooden spoon in their hand.  You know what I'm talking about.  I decided to "make cookies" with my little one for the first time this week.  This is about how it went:

"Baby, do you want to make cookies with me?"

"Cookie!!"

"Ok, let's get your chair, come sit in your chair and you can help me."

"Cookie!!"

"Well, no, I don't have a cookie for you right now.  We're going to make cookies."

"Cookie!!"

Did I mention he recently learned to say "cookie?"  Oh, and his pronunciation of the word includes yelling it at the top of his lungs.  It was a good lesson in patience.
