She walks into the kitchen, "Hey Mama! What are you doing?" As I answer her and tell her that I'm cooking, she pulls up a chair. She climbs up and helps me with whatever job I'll give her, until our dinner goes into the oven. It's become a daily thing- this little girl and I working in the kitchen together. She loves it and I'm finding that I love it, too. I actually have found myself waiting to cook, until she's able to be there, on that chair, perched next to me.
Sometimes I make up "jobs" for her, when a pan is hot or if I'm using a knife. Tonight, her job was to line this pepperoni up, while I chopped the zucchini. Then she helped me sprinkle the basil and after that, she stood next to me, snacking on shredded cheese, while I finished our dinner.
>>>Wrapping this up with a favorite read from today. I'm trying this new routine on. You know, sharing the things I love. Sharing with you, what's inspiring me. I think it sounds fun. And doable. Maybe I'm on to something.
Annapolis and Company: F O U R- Her heart is beautiful and inspiring. The prayer that she wrote in this post was so sweet and relatable. Go take a look, her blog is a treasure.
