Eliza is really, really into playing with her little kitchen, plastic food, and play pots and pans. So today, when we let her “help” us bake Christmas cookies, she was in heaven.
She stood on a step stool for no less than 45 minutes in complete and total concentration: pouring flour, sugar, and salt from one bowl to another, stirring, adding cinnamon, feeling it with her fingers, trying out the measuring cups and spoons, having an absolute blast. She got herself (and the kitchen) so messy, but it was so interesting to see her so focused and so joyful.
Maybe she’s a famous chef in the making? Nothing would make us prouder, I believe!
