Cookies and a Toddler

I come up with ideas all the time. My brain hardly gets any rest from all the ideas that pop up inside of it ten gazillion times each day. Most of those ideas are silly and hold zero merits whatsoever but there are some that are worthy of trying out for size, those that I wish I'd never tried out for size, and those that turn out to be the best. idea. ever. the latter being the rarest. Anyway...

I decided I needed to bake cookies with Bug. She's two and smarter than that whip people always talk about plus she's always in the kitchen with her mommy so I figured it would be fun. I wasn't wrong!

She never even attempted to put her hands inside the bowl while the mixer was running.

Bug: I can touch it?
Me: Yes, you sure can touch it.
Bug: I touched it!
Me: Yes, you did!

Bug: I can eat it?
Me: Yes. Do you like it?
Bug: Yeah! I like it!

She certainly enjoyed eating the cookies after they came out of the oven. So did I. They were the best cookies I ever had.

We thought about saving some for later but where's the fun in that?

I now know that the fun I had in my grandmother's kitchen wasn't the best time for me. She must have enjoyed it, too because I've never had more fun baking cookies before. And I've baked a whole bunch of cookies over the years.

That cutie on the right is Bug's mommy. 

Ah, granddaughters. Not that we would have excluded the grandson, he just wasn't in town that day. And he's ONE so...

How many of you love baking with your grandkids or loved baking with your kids when they were little?
