Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies Recipe (Kid-Friendly)

With the new year comes new intentions. For me, my two biggest areas of growth is spending less time on my phone and more time homeschooling my boys and making home cooked meals. I really want to start including David and Liam in my meal creations. This got this recipe from Taste and Home.

This morning we made Oatmeal and Chocolate Chip Cookies. I would say that David approved 👍 it was a bit stressful having him in the kitchen since I was trying to juggle making breakfast but at the end, seeing him smile as he took a bite of his cookie, makes it all worth it 🍪🥛

👉👉Wisdom of the day: Take a moment and set your intentions for the new year. As I like to tell my coaching clients, step away from new year's resolutions and move towards setting your intentions. What intentions do you have for this brand new year? Life is like a blank canvas and you're the painter. Make it colorful❤️
