Last week Kyah came over to me and Jared and asked if she could make cookies all by herself. She had found a recipe in our Mrs. Fields cookie cookbook that was called "Kids bake 'em cookies", so of course she needed to make these by herself, right? Knowing that she has made cookies with her Dad many times, we said sure and reminded her to ask us if she needed help. Donning her apron, she set to work. Jared went in to help her after she had most of the ingredients in the bowl, but I think that was more because he likes making cookies than because she needed help. She did a great job!
Then, Friday, I was weeding the yard (a never-ending task) and she once again asked me if she could make them-- this time with friends Sophie and Elsie. I told her I'd like to help her with the oven, but the girls could do the rest. Kyah didn't really need my help with the oven. She got everything from setting it to wearing hot pads to bending at the waist to avoid hitting the hot door when she slid the trays in without any issue. And even better, they tasted good too! She is sure growing up.
:) I think that "I can't believe my firstborn is doing this already" is going to be a common theme on this blog in the months and years to come.
