Some families eat cookie dough and some don't -- I come from a pro-cookie dough family, so my kids eat it too. Obviously there are lots more like us out there, otherwise, why would we have cookie dough ice cream?! In the US, they've tried to make it not scary to eat cookie dough by introducing pasteurized eggs. Takes all the fun out of it. Do those still exist? They had just come out when we moved. Here we have cute little brown eggs with feathers and other yuckier chicken stuff still attached.
We're building! M's old enough now to be a very good helper, and V gives it a good shot and mostly gets in the way. She actually tries really hard to get in the way, to be honest. She moved up to a big girl bed today and so far has gotten up twice since we put her to bed. We'll see how long it takes her to go to sleep and how many times she pops up during the night... maybe we should have left her in the crib a little longer :) The other item they're working on is, can you guess? A bookshelf! And yes, it's already full. The kids were sad that they couldn't go on the IKEA run today, but there wasn't any room for passengers. So M wrote Daddy a shopping list before he left. So cute. It was legible and everything. I helped with the spelling.
