Little Betty Crocker

Before I go into my next schpill....I'd like to take a moment here to acknowledge something. Yes, I only have one child. (And I'm patiently waiting for #2, if that's in His plan.) Yes, my one child happens to be a pretty well-behaved child(and makes me think that - because the world just works this way - my 2nd child will be terror on wheels!). And yes, Angela, again....I can do this because I have just ONE child. OK. Onto my story!

Grace loves to cook. She asks everyday, as I'm preparing meals, "Can I help you?". She'll drag her chair right up to the counter, somewhat close to the oven, look at me and say "I won't touch the oven." I say "okay" and casually remind myself not to get worried about the extra mess saying "yes" will create. Anyway, she especially loves to help me bake. She eats most of the dough, but I don't mind. These years are fleeting right? As she turns the "on" button of my kitchen aid mixer to SUPER HIGH and the flour goes flying everywhere....I remind myself of this fact, give her a hug, and tell her she's a great little baker. After all, she IS my only child.
