We haven't seen the Cookie Club kids in forever. So, I thought it would be fun to get together and make some Easter cookies. I called them last night to set up a time, and then I made a special trip to the store this morning to get all of the ingredients.
I was surprised when the scheduled time came and went, and no kids showed up. In the good old days, the kids would be banging down our door, and we would be saying to them, "Come back in five minutes! We're not ready yet!"
I called their mom, and she informed me that they had decided to go to the YMCA with their friends instead.
I guess they are growing up. Preston is a junior in high school (he only came to eat the cookies anyway), Mahogany is an eighth grader (the age when no one is cooler than your friends), and Ebony and David (both still in elementary school) are influenced by their cool older siblings. On top of that, little Guinny, Natasha, Lawrence, and Yani moved away.
What a bummer.
I feel like a mom whose kids don't want her around anymore. It's kinda sad.
