Helping Mom

I took these photos of Jadyn when she was helping me in the kitchen. Last week, it was our turn to bring snacks for preschool. We brought string cheese and crackers for the kids. It's customary to bring something for the parent discussion group that same morning.

I had a blueberry muffin mix in the pantry, so I made it into a blueberry bread and also picked up some fresh strawberries.
Jadyn loves to help me cook and I don't think to let her do it often enough. I think it's because I usually only think about it when I'm baking. I should try to let her help more with other things too.

"It's really gooey!"

Lick the spoon!

We've had a little rain during the past couple of days. Here's a picture of Sophie that I took today. She was looking out as it started to rain. All is well with her world. -pun intended.

I know what you mean- I have to make a point of letting the girls help me!

Cute pic of Sophie and I love the pun. BTW I had to read it over 4 times and study the pic to get it- I'm a little slow!

xo to my "redneck" friend.

I have to admit, I find it easier and neater to do things myself. But when I take the time to let the little ones help, the reward is their happiness in lending and hand and it really is worth it!

What a cute little baker you have there! I also don't let my little ones help in the kitchen as much as I should....always in a hurry! : )
