Z went to bed later tonight. He had a late wakeup from his nap, so I thought we’d let him just enjoy some time with us while V went to bed early. (She had a 30 minute nap and fell asleep before 7pm.)
I decided on a whim to bake some yogurt cake. Z had to go potty for #2 and while he was on the potty, he called out, “Mommy, can we make cookies?” I told him that we couldn’t tonight because it would take more time. And he asked me why the flour was out on the counter. So I explained that I was making yogurt cake. “Can I have some when it’s done?”
Of course, he could. So we read on the kitchen floor, in front of the oven, while the cakes baked. I used these cute silicone molds we bought from the Superstore. Hearts, flowers and teddy bears.
When they were finished baking, M helped me take some out of the mold to cool. Z then said to me, “I don’t want to eat the bear.” He said with a sad voice and face. So I said he could eat the heart-shaped one instead. It was delicious.
After he finished his half, he asked if he could have more. I grabbed the bear-shaped one and I showed it to him up close. Then he said, “We can eat bear. It’s just a muffin!”. And so we did.
