I decided that I should put forth the effort to do something with Emma and Bella today rather than just let them go and play on their own. I thought they might enjoy helping me make some peanut butter cookies. I mixed the butter and peanut butter before they knew what I was up to, measured the sugars and set them aside, cracked an egg into a measuring cup, and measured the flour into a bowl.
The girls dumped and stirred. When their arms got tired, I stirred. I rolled little balls of dough, put them on the cookie sheets, and gave each girl a fork to criss-cross the cookies. Both girls were very happy with the results and each took home a plateful of cookies this afternoon. What do you bet they ask to make cookies again tomorrow?
