Chloe is usually my Sous Chef when it comes to baking, but lately Lydia has shown a real interest in helping me in the kitchen. Tonight, we're having one of my favorite meals: Gingerbread Waffles. Yum-o! Lydia poured all the ingredients in and would ask, "What's that?:" and then would repeat me: "Flour, cinn'un, nutegg, baby powder (baking powder). . ."
She licked every drop of molasses off the tablespoon. Then she got a big kick out of seeing her messy self in the mirror. I still called Chloe in when it came time for the eggs. She's the eggspert. (pathetic, I know.)
