This post is part of my Thirty-One Days with a Two-Year-Old series.
Repeat after me: it will get easier, it will get easier, it will get easier.
It will get easier, right?
Please tell me that putting in the effort now will yield my own little sous chef by the time she's four, making all of my patience worthwhile. Because baking cookies with a two-year-old definitely requires patience. And situational awareness to make sure that all fingers and tongues are clear before turning on the mixer. Yes, when I told her that she couldn't touch the beater with her fingers, she leaned forward and tried to lick it ... while it was still on the mixer.
I'm being good ... you only told me that I couldn't touch the beater.
Being the taste tester is a very important job.
Om nom nom!
