This morning I made some whole wheat muffins and of course Jaxon wanted to help. He loves helping Grammy bake. He’s especially good at stirring and tasting! To keep him busy for a bit, I had him put the muffin liners in the muffin tin, which he loved. We had to use a couple extra ones because he got a little carried away and scrunched a few. J Muffin mix isn’t nearly as tasty as cookie mix so it was hard for him to understand why he couldn’t “taste” it. He’d say, “Bite Peeeease” Midway through the process, it occurred to me how special it is to be able to teach Jaxon how to bake and cook already at two years old. I see this being something we do together for many years to come. Did it take longer to have him help me? Absolutely. Was it worth the extra time and mess. Absolutely!!!!
I also learned a valuable lesson about eggs and microwaves today. (doesn’t sound good does it). I peeled a hardboiled egg and put it in the microwave to warm it up slightly for lunch. After 20 seconds it was barely warm so I gave it another 20 seconds. I thought that would be plenty of time to at least get the chill off it. As I cut into it with a knife, it made a LOUD pop and EXPLODED everywhere! I had egg yolk all over myself, the counter and the floor! What a mess! I’d never had that happen before, but I’ll remember it now!
How is everyone else doing with their own “challenge” ? I’d love to hear about it!
