Photo Friday: Naked Mommy & Daddy Cookies

It was Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend so M and I made gingerbread cookies. No, it isn't some weird tradition up here, they're more of a Christmas treat, but gingerbread is not too sweet, fun to make with kids and the spices are similar to pumpkin pie spices so I thought what the hell. We cut out gingerbread men, bears, leaves and pumpkins, baked them and then - the best part aside from eating them - decorated them!

M has a love affair with sprinkles and candy in general, and tends to spill the majority of the decorations on the floor, so we rapidly destroyed a whole party pack of sprinkles (mostly on the pumpkins and leaves) and box of Smarties. Rather than salvage sprinkles from the floor (I was tempted), I grabbed a bag of shredded coconut from the pantry. We used coconut for hair and bear fur. Well, once you put hair on a gingerbread man, it becomes a very life-like thing and you can't stop there. M asked, "Is this a Mommy cookie? Where's her bobos? What about her pee-pee?" Those are her words for private parts. We try to teach her the real words but she prefers hers. Can you blame her? Her names sound so cute! Anyways, I decided this could be a teachable moment so we made a Naked Mommy Cookie. And then of course we had to make a Naked Daddy Cookie.

I hope she doesn't grow up expecting men's penises to reach to their ankles.

After consuming several heavily iced and candy coated cookies, we put the Naked Cookies on a tray with some normal (yawn) gingerbread men and left them on the kitchen table for K to admire.

He grabbed one for a snack and didn't even bat an eye at the naked ones, can you believe it? Or maybe he was busy thinking about how he could sneak poison into them since he's secretly trying to kill me. What do you think?
