Baking With (or in Spite of) Mom!
Mondays are generally Dakotapastor’s day off. This works out well, as I have Bible study at church on Monday mornings, and I can choose to bring the girls along or not. The girls generally stay with Dakotapastor and they go on a long walk or adventure somewhere. We spend Monday afternoons watching movies, going shopping, or running errands. I’m generally not on the blog much (I’m sure you noticed.)
This Monday we sat around after lunch and Dakotapastor suggested to the girls that we bake cookies.
Hmmm. Maybe Dakotapastor did not get the memo.
Well, I bake bread, but cookies are a stretch.
But, the minute he suggested it, their eyes lit right up!
“Cookies!” they shouted.
So, I headed for my pantry and pulled our my staples. . .my emergency rations. . .my just in case I have to bake cookies “Old Faithfuls”–boxed cookie mixes.
Dakotapastor laughed and said, “I was thinking something more along the lines of chocolate chip cookies. From scratch. You can bake cookies from scratch, right?”
The truth is, I can bake. I just don’t enjoy it.
However, there is no masking the fact that my little girls do love baking. That means we’re just going to have to get some flour on our faces around here, and make some great memories!
Chime in! What do your children inspire you to do that you may not enjoy. . .but they do?
