Thankful Hearts Blog Hop

Love the idea behind this blog hop! I really enjoy seeing everyone’s blogs and getting {stealing} so many great ideas from them. Be sure to visit this blog for more information on this hop.

So, let’s see… I’ve got a gargantuan amount of stuff to be thankful for, but I shall single one thing out for this post. I am thankful for the time that I’ve been spending cooking and baking with Babydoll.

Anyone that knows me knows I am not a crafty mom. I love to craft certain things, and if I see something that I think is worth our time, I will craft. But, I am not one of those moms that will sit there with crayons and glue and construction paper. It just irritates me to no end for some reason. But I do have something that I enjoy doing and that I can do relatively well, and that’s working in the kitchen.

Babydoll is now old enough to be able to help out quite a bit in the kitchen. This week we’ve baked coconut cupcakes, prepped dinners during our 5 Dinners in 1 Hour prep hour, and cooked up a fun Sunday night meal. I so enjoy this quality time with her, and she really enjoys it too {she lets me know every night before she goes to bed}.

My dream is that someday, when she’s much older, she’ll look back on this time with fond memories and know how much I love her and enjoyed sharing that time with her. Oh, and I hope she knows how to cook…
