Butterflies and birdies

Butterfly sandwiches and a birdie cookie from the Moms Club bake sale for lunch today. Big hit. I was e-chatting about butterflies with Sparkle Story maven Lisabeth, and Rye saw a photo of a past butterfly sandwich and needed one Right. Now. Even though it was right after breakfast. He reluctantly waited until lunchtime.

That cookie is super simple—store bought candy eyes, a triangle of orange frosting on a yellow cookie. Frankly, it would make a great English muffin, with two kinds of cheeses. Wish I'd thought of it.

And guess what? If you're three and you don't play Angry Birds, and your mom keeps you away from Angry Birds junk, and you hang out with like-minded families. then a birdie cookie gets to be just a birdie cookie—not an advertisement, or a ready-made script.

I'm disappointed that, with school coming up, that's not going to last as long as I'd like.
