I need a new kitchen timer.
Munchkin and I whipped up a batch of double peanut butter cookies today. We set the timer and went in the living room to play. A little while later I thought to myself "It seems like more than 10 minutes has passed. Sure enough the cookies had passed the pleasantly brown phase to the lumps that no one will eat phase. I think the timer must have been dropped one too many times. It still said 10 minutes on it so I set it it just didn't move. We tried a second batch that turned out much nicer since we knew we needed to watch the time instead of being lazy and waiting for a bell to tell us when the cookies would be ready! :)
