At the age of almost five, Mia proved to be quite the helper when I babysat last leek. Asking me if, when I came to sleep over, I would bring my baking supplies and the ingredients to make one of her and her mom's favorites..pumpkin chocolate chip cookies..was a treat for me too!
Although the mixing was a joint venture, I manned the oven work and Mia was responsible to transfer the cooled cookies neatly and carefully from the rack to the containers.
Ending up with close to six dozen, she and I felt that if we both ate one it would be okay. They were yummy too! When her Mom stopped by before heading back to work, we gave her a dozen to share with her employees while Daddy had to wait until he got home that night.
We read her book, answered the questioned at the end then practiced her "sight" words as promised...words like
a, an, see, he, she, it, they, go, I, me, you, and, ap
Yes "ap" & "an"
Which then became
zap, cap, map, sap, tap, lap
man, can, ran, ban, Dan, tan, fan
