Photostory Friday: A Boy and His Brownie Batter

This is a story about a boy who, up until the time he was two, had not received even a lick of brownie batter. His mother, who passionately hates baking, had deprived her children of such pleasures in life as licking the mixing spoon full of ooey gooey mouth watering chocolate mush. One day after giving into a craving for something fattening and delicious. Said mother decides to break down and mix up a boxed batch of brownies. She is feeling unusually generous that day and so decides to share a small part of the half batch of brownie batter that always makes it into her mouth pre baked. She scoops out a spoonful for her three-year-old daughter and then hands two-year-old son the mixing spoon full of ooey gooey goodness.

  1. Oh my goodness, I KNOW THAT LAST LOOK all too well.

    I tried to take an Oreo away from my toddler yesterday. TRIED. And then there were tears. :)


  2. Haha. Poor deprived kids. (I don't bake either. Shiloh didn't even know what a cupcake was on her birthday.) Love the pictures and I'm glad I'm not the only "mean" mommy that takes pictures when my kid cries.

  3. LOL.
    I feel the same way when the batter is gone. :)

  4. I feel the same way when I realize I've run out of brownie batter. I feel ya buddy!

    Great pics!!

  5. that is so cute! i love brownie mix!

  6. oh - too cute - I do this as well but warm them - only one or two licks (b/c of the raw eggs).

  7. Oh man! You get him hooked and then he sees there's no more? I'm sure I would have made that same face.

  8. My kids would feel equally deprived if I didn't bake. Although when he gets older he'll probably figure out how to make those brownies himself. That's what I threatened mine with. Want something sweet? Make it yourself. Works well and teaches them how to cook a little. :)

    I hope he enjoyed the brownies. Probably stopped the crying.

  9. I haven't yet offered my child brownie batter. And I can see that I won't be...ever.

    Cute capture!

  10. Mama giveth, and Mama taketh away.

    What a cutie!
