01:16 pm - Baking with the Girl
Tomorrow is my mother-in-law's birthday. Tomorrow being Tuesday, and Tuesday being the day my mother-in-law comes over to play with Leila for a few hours while I Do Stuff (this week Stuff = freelance work), this means my mother-in-law will be over here for her birthday. So of course I had to Do Stuff for her birthday, because I that is the way I am.

Leila enjoyed making her a card, and then Leila and I baked a batch of these. Like no joke, Leila and I made them. She helped, for real, and not in a babyish lame-o way.

I'd tell her to stir in an ingredient, walk away from the table for a minute to get something, and when I came back, the ingredient would be all mixed in. She did meaningful stuff! She's a Helper!

I am so psyched, and proud of her. She is Gettin' Biggah. I told her she's a good helper, and that she'll be a good baker someday. She was like whatever, and was much happier about getting to eat M&Ms, trying a taste of unsweetened baking cocoa (which she seemed to like. hm.) and getting her first-ever taste of raw cookie dough.

The blondies are currently in the oven, so there's no word yet on whether Leila secretly managed to ruin the batter while my back was turned. Like maybe she slipped a plastic sea turtle in there.

They are OK. Not the Taste Sensation I was hoping for, but they'll do!
