Yesterday morning Emma was up and in the kitchen by 6:30AM. This was late for Em. For the past two mornings she was up at 5:00AM and 4:00AM. I was grateful for the extra few hours.
When I went downstairs I saw Emma.
She seemed to have everything under control, so I just followed her around taking photos as she worked.
There were a few minor spills, but nothing she wasn’t able to clean up on her own.
She was well organized. All the ingredients she needed were laid out.
She even sang a little song as she worked.
“Mix, mix, mix the pancakes, mix, mix, mix the pancakes, mix, mix, mix, mix, mix!”
She tasted it, to be sure it was good.
I helped pour the batter onto the grill.
But she took it from there.
It’s good to be home.
