Remember those days when you’re littles wanted to “help” you cook in the kitchen? Everything would take twice as long and be twice as messy! But it pays off in the long run. I’m blessed to watch my older daughters become efficient and proficient in the kitchen. And I’m blessed to watch them patiently take the time to teach their younger sister. I made a cake with Ruthie the other day and homemade ice cream with Jack, and it took more patience than I expected. Mia is much better at including the little ones and letting them get their hands messy than I am. But I like to think that she learned to be that way when I was younger and teaching her!
