Callie loves -- so so loves -- mixing, measuring, stirring, cooking, baking...I tell her I'm the chef and she's my sous-chef (my 2nd in command in the kitchen). She loves my title. "Where's my Sous-Chef?" "Here Chef Mommy!" So on Saturday night, when Sammy went to bed and I started to make some cookies for my class on Sunday, Callie was eager to join in. She insisted I put on an apron so we could match -- and mix, measure, and bake we did.
Even Daddy joined in this time, which is a treat. Often he's at work while we bake -- not that we bake all that often, but ya know. Look at that smile. She's so happy. Cookies = Bliss. (I like to think we added to that smile though too.)
