When I became a mom I totally thought I’d be the one who could work, have Pinterest worthly meals and all the time in the world to spend with my children. Well reality quickly set in and I realized that more often than not, I could NOT DO IT ALL. I quickly yearned for a slower time- the slow times our clients often spoke of. When they were not distracted with emails, texts, and the monuemental list of tasks just waiting to be crossed off.
So in order to combat the race we are often in, my girls and I dedicate nights, afternoons, or all day Saturdays to something they want to do. Whether playing American Girl Dolls and being instructed what to do or baking something from a cookbook or our imagination we take these moments to slow down and enjoy our time together.
When I ran across “The Mother Goose Cookie-Candy Book”, by Anne Rockwell in my “memory box” at my parents I just knew my girls would love it. It was something I adored cooking from with my mom when I was a young girl. So Tuesday night Shelby asked to make the Carrot Bars on her own as I watched over. I was so proud of her reading the instructions and being a part of her accomplishing making something so delicous. We encourage you to try this one with your littles some time soon!
