Today I am thankful for baking. It's a wonderful way to spend time with the kids (it especially helped Monster Bean and I get through those days of needy baby syndrome with Little Miss). They love being the one to grab the eggs (knock on wood, they have to break one en route to me or the counter), to mix the flour and baking soda, to pour in the chips or whatnot into the mixing bowl. They help me count how many cups I need, grab me the utensils, peek in the oven to tell me if they look done, if they look delicious or whatever pops into their mind. Baking with my kids brings so many happy memories to mind. I hope when they are older they will be as precious to them as well.
