Baking Cookies

When both boys started school last month, I wasn't sure how Lily would react.
She has been used to having at least one of them with her for most of the day.
She does go to preschool two mornings a week,
and we have had her cousins over,
and she plays with the little girl across the street.....
but we can't have those people over here all the time.
I didn't have anything to worry about though.

Lily has discovered, that while she likes when her brothers get home,
she really likes getting to do things ALL BY HERSELF!! =)

She doesn't have to share any of the play dough and play dough toys.
She can ride any of the bikes or scooters in the garage.
She doesn't have to share the blocks.....
and no one knocks her buildings down.
Yes, things around here are pretty sweet for little Miss Lily.

Today though, she discovered something else she likes to do without her brothers' (sometimes not so helpful) help.

Making cookies with mommy!

She gets to pour in all of the ingredients.
She doesn't have to take turns stirring.
And she gets to crack the eggs!

This is what happens when you let a 3 year old crack an egg for the first time while taking pictures of her:
Let's take a closer look shall we?
She completely missed the bowl!!

I love that look on her face. =)

She got it on the second try.
More fun things about baking without "The Brothers":
Pouring in the chocolate chips.......

....and getting all of the "tastes" to yourself! =)

Tasting is Lily's FAVORITE part.

So I would have to say that Lily is well adjusted to being at home by herself with just me.


  1. As long as she didn't get any shell in the batter she's all good!!

    I'll be over later for my share of cookies...thanks Lily!! ;0)


  2. Oh, this is making me crave choc. chip cookie dough! Not the cookies so much... but the dough!! :)
