Kids, Cookies, Memories, and Losing a Segment of Society

Although there are plenty of people around who still remember the 1950s, many alive today did not live during that time. It is a foreign concept to most kids today that their mother would have warm cookies and milk at home for them when returning from school. However, that was common in the 1950s. Today, far fewer mothers are able to stay home during the day. Many moms are forced into the workforce in order to help provide the financial needs of their family. It is a sad reality of the society we live in today. Gone are the days of coming home to warm cookies and milk with mom. However, that does not stop moms from being creative. For example, some will buy an assortment of gourmet cookies from places like and have them delivered to the home for their children to have when they come home from school.
Making Cookies and Memories Anyways

Although many moms cannot be waiting at home with warm cookies and milk when their children return home from school, many moms understand the value of what that does and why moms of earlier generations did it. Having cookies with the kids is a chance to make memories. It is also a chance to talk about the day, and how things went. Even though it may not be right after school, many moms are making cookies at night to have with their children. Any time with children is valuable, and it is worth making cookies at any time possible. Moms today are strong women that understand the role they now must play.
Why Kids Love Cookies

Kids love sweets of any kind. Cookies fall into this category. However, it is not just the taste of the cookie kids love. Kids love the memories that come with cookies as well. For example, think back to a Halloween or a Valentine’s Day when you were in elementary school. Chances are you remember frosting a sugar cookie with pink frosting on Valentine’s Day and orange frosting on Halloween. That cookie you decorated is tied to the memories of what that holiday was for you as a kid. The method may be changing, such as ordering cookies from places like, but the reasoning is the same.
