My children and I made some Almond Crisp cookies last night. They were actually quite tasty. What little of them that were left today I brought to work to give to my co-workers. The interesting this is that when I offered them, each asked me, ?¢‚Ç¨?ìDid you make this or did your wife?¢‚Ç¨¬ù. If my wife was in my place, it is highly likely she would not have been asked the same question.
Have we become so wrapped up in having stay-at-home mums that we think fathers are incapable of doing homey things like making cookies? Do we still, in 2004, have this Molly Mormon ideal where the wife/mother?¢‚Ç¨‚Äùas part of her routine?¢‚Ç¨‚Äùregularly bakes cookies for the sole purpose of treating the guys at work?
