There's something magic that occurs when you toss a toddler in the kitchen.
Some might call that magic mess. :-p
I think the mess and the wonder creates beauty. Beauty that's edible.
Last week the girls and I made a carrot cake together (Gluten-free even!)
They helped me stir sauteing mushrooms.
They picked and cut up strawberries.
There's something beautiful about including them in daily activities like dinner.
Something in my heart that says "I need help." and something in their hearts that says "I can be helpful. God can use me." Both of these so very simply affirming for all parties involved.
