My almost one year old is going through a super clingy phase where I cant leave him alone. I can’t leave the room for anything. If I even stand up he starts’s like he feels like Im leaving and never coming back. I don’t even know where its coming from. And while its super cute that he wants to cuddle so much, the other side of it..having to hold him on my hip all day long, makes it entirely impossible to get anything done.

I suppose I should just cherish the time because someday he won’t want anything to do with being in the same room as me (tear!), but at the moment, it’s both sweet and frustrating that he won’t allow someone else to hold him. I love him dearly, but he has the loudest voice of any child Ive ever when hes sure as heck are going to know it.

C’est la vie. I wouldn’t trade him for the entire world.

On the other hand, my 2 1/2 year old is becoming wayyyy to independent. What the heck..he’s to young to not need me anymore! He pushes me away sometimes and says things like “Go workout momma” (gee, thanks kid) or “Momma, go cook, I’m watching Mickey” or my least favorite “Nooo Momma, I do it!” Slow your roll kid, you’re still a baby to me!

Moving on from my tears, let’s talk about cookies, because these are a sure-fire way to get my son to want to hang out with me..loves to eat the dough, loves to pour, mix, roll into balls, and then eat his creation. He’s a cookie lover like his parents and I love it. Also, hes crazy obsessed with peanut butter like my husband. They just sit there eating spoonful after spoonful of peanut butter together. Super cute by the way.

Ok, I guess I didn’t really talk about cookies there, more about my kid. Can’t help it, I love em’! BUT about these cookies…there is a ton of creamy peanut butter in there, followed by peanut butter m&m’s (my favorite!) p.s. NOT reeses pieces..there IS a difference. And then an additional bit of chocolate. They’re super thick and chewy, just the way I like my cookies, and they’re so colorful that kids love them! My son thinks they’re extra special because he’s getting both candy AND cookies together…win! win!

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened

  • 1 egg

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt and vanilla pudding. Set Aside
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together the butter and both sugars, scraping down the sides to make sure you've got it well mixed.
  4. Add in the egg and vanilla and mix to combine.
  5. Mix in the peanut butter, again scraping down the sides and bottom of the bowl.
  6. Once the peanut butter is well mixed, slowly add the dry ingredients mixing until just combined.
  7. Add the m&m's and mini chocolate chips and stir a few times to get them tossed in there.
  8. Grabbing a medium cookie scoop, scoop out dough and roll into a ball. Pull the ball apart so you have two pieces in your hands. Stack them so the sides with the rough edges are both facing up. Lightly push together and place on the baking sheets. Repeat with remaining dough.
