My Little Baker

Elle LOVES to cook.  Whatever I am doing in the kitchen, she insists on helping.  She climbs onto the counter and does whatever it is I ask of her.  Her helping usually means that whatever I am doing is going to take longer and there will be a much bigger mess to clean up but it is totally worth it.  It is something fun we can do together.  Last week after preschool she hopped into the car and said, "mama, we made this chef hat because my teacher knows I am a chef"!   She wears that cute little paper  hat with pride along with her own apron.  Well, today she was my little baker.  And just like when I was her age, her favorite part of making cookies is getting to sneak a little pinch of brown sugar for herself.  A girl after my own heart.
