There are some real benefits to having your younger sister live with you: she cooks twice a week. She watches the little ones while you run the big ones to school. She mops the floor, holds the baby, spreads exuberance and cheer on a daily basis. Quite often she asks casually, “How’s that novel of yours coming, Tiff?”
Things get even better if your little sister just happens to work at the wildly popular local cookie shop, Tiff’s Treats. (Don’t you just love the name?) Because often you are greeted in the morning with such a sight as this:
About $50 worth of fresh-baked cookies with my name on them! Butterscotch, chocolate chip, peanut butter, snickerdoodle, M&M, oatmeal raisin…I’ve had to explain to the kids, many times, that cookies are not an acceptable breakfast. They’re not convinced.
We are, quite literally, wallowing in cookies. Anyone hungry?
We love you Kat, and all the amenities that come with you.
