Baking Bread for the first time!
I was in the kitchen, preparing to make some rolls with the dough I had just made when Corynn came in. She saw me don my apron and saw the rolling pin on the counter and she started to squeal...'WAIT! WAIT! I will help you!!!"
She flew to her kitchen set and returned just SECONDS later, arms brimming with apron, cookie sheet and rolling pin which she promptly threw on the table and then ran to the bathroom to fetch her stool.
"Good grief!" I thought. "This was supposed to be a two minute job!" But even the horrid, green-faced selfish Mama that reared her ugly head couldn't withstand the sight of a certain Little Miss bubbling forth with excitement, miniature rolling pin in hand.
So-she had her first bread making experience. She rolled a pint-sized portion of dough with her pint-sized rolling pin; sprinkled a pinch full of cornmeal on her teeny weeny cookie sheet and made the family some rolls for supper. As pint-sized as it all was, it left a HUGE impression.
