Jolie has, as of late, had a special interest in cooking, to the point that her grandparents have purchased a play kitchen and a microwave that lights up! The first thing she asks for in the morning is her "cooking," and I can rarely ever wander into the kitchen to heat up a Hot Pocket without her asking to help. "JOLIE DO IT!" she yells.
So today, we decided to make cupcakes with her, and let her help out as much as possible. Jolie proved to be a very good assistant in the kitchen!
We frosted a few more together, and then came the best part - eating the cupcakes! Jolie was so happy to be taking a bite of something that she'd helped to make herself - her excited smiles showed just how proud she was of herself and how happy she was for all three of us to be spending time together, doing something fun and tasty.
