A young man prepared

So Emmitt hit the big 1-2 this past week (the 28th) and on Sunday he was ordained a Deacon (http://www.mormon.org/mormonorg/eng/basic-beliefs/glossary/glossary-definition/deacon) in the Aaronic Preisthood. He is such a fun kid and I love that he has blessed our family with his wit and sense of humor.
In our family we have a tradition that on your b-day you get to have what ever you want for dinner. So I asked Emmitt what he wanted a few days before his big day. I always expect them to tell me what they want me to fix, but for some reason they always say where they want to go. (What, am I really that bad of a cook?!?!) So Emmitt says he wants to go to Young's it's a fun Japanese resturant where they cook at your table. It was great. Good Choice Emmitt!!! Also the kids get to pick what kind of cake they want again I expect them to tell me what kind they want me to make and usually that's not what they want. So when I ask Emm what he wants he say's you'll need to get together with Kim 'cause I want a big cookie (for those who don't know Kim is known for her yummy cookies - she's the best) well my heart breaks and I relize that my kids have no faith in my cooking abilities, what kind of mom am I?!?!?! Here is our conversation:

Me : Really, Emmitt I don't need Kim I can do it.
Emmitt: Well mom, I really think you better get together with Kim.
Me: (my heart breaking and a quiver in my voice) I know I can do it. It will be the best big cookie you've ever had.
Emmitt: (noticing that my feelings are hurt) Okay mom you can do it. (with a look in his eyes that say, well there goes my b-day "cake")

Notice the pictures above see the cookie. Looks really good huh, so there I can do it. I love ya Kim but I didn't need you. Okay let's be honest now. Let me just say it's a really good thing Emmitt loves cookie dough.

Well you did a GREAT job! I think that is how my mom must feel when we ask for my dad to make our things.
