Today, our kitchen, 2:30pm, baking chocolate chip cookies for the neighbors.
Me: (demonstrating how to measure flour correctly) ... and so then you just use this butter knife to get the excess flour off the top of the measuring cup. See? Then it's flat and you know you have just enough flour for the cookies.
ST: I get it, Mom. Can I try it?
Me: (jokingly) Sure, but first you have to say, "Mom, you are a super-genius."
ST: (very seriously) No, Mom. I just think you're crazy.
