seeing rainbows


This week flew by! But, it’s been a really good week. I got an all-clear from my dermatologist on Monday. I got great reports from the boys’ teachers at parent-teacher conferences on Tuesday. I’ve been editing a shoot I did for a client last week and my inner critic seems to be cutting me a break. (sometimes while I edit photos my inner critic can get mean!) And…I made these cookies!

I decided to make rainbow cookies around St. Patrick’s Day. And I am really pleased with how they came out. But mostly I was so happy to make them. It felt SO good to sit and decorate cookies. And as I was doing it I kept thinking “dang I like to MAKE stuff!”

It’s just good for the soul. :)


The boys were so happy when they came home to a table covered in rainbow cookies.  I keep wondering when Andrew will be too old for this kind of thing.  When will silly things that mom does, like make rainbow cookies, be not-at-all-cool?  And…well…not yet!  He still loves this kind of thing. :)  And I’m glad!  I’ll take it as long as I can get it.


We have a lot planned this weekend…starting tonight! After ballet, we are headed to a Science museum for a Spring into Science Party! Should be fun! Happy weekends to you all!

You might notice in the comments section, that I added a captcha (?) thing. SOO sorry about that! I hate those things, but my blog was spam-attacked this week and I tried a couple of other things to stop the attack, but I eventually had to put up a captcha. Hopefully it won’t deter too many compliments on these rockin’ cookies. ;)

About robyn

I stopped teaching Kindergarten in 2005 to become the mom of two crazy boys here in Brooklyn. At first I thought being a stay at home mom meant that I needed to pour all my time and energy directly into my sons, but I realized somewhere along the way that being a rockstar mom meant not only taking good care of my boys, but also taking good care of myself. And taking good care of myself means pursuing something creative...just about everyday. I started Made In Brooklyn to motivate myself in my creative goals as well as share my work with others and perhaps inspire them in their own creative journeys.
