Being the photo-centric person I am I couldn’t help but think of all the great photos I was going to capture of the two of us baking together.Well, bless my family. As soon as people heard that MomMom and I were baking cookies everyone decided that it was the perfect time to stop by and visit (and who can blame them - seriously – who doesn’t love hot out the oven cookies).
MomMom ended up taking more of a supervisory role in the cooking making process so that she could greet and spend time with each family member who stopped by. This of course, meant that I got to do most of the mixing, scooping, and pouring. Since I love to bake, this isn’t really a problem…however; it did mean those great photos I envisioned had to change a bit.
I never did get the granddaughter and grandmother baking side by side. Rather, the picture I have is one where my grandmother is sitting back and enjoying the company. I can't help but prefer this picture - it's so MomMom. What do you think?
Lesson 1: It won’t always go as you think. That’s OK.
Lesson 2: Just go with it. It'll make things easier.
Lesson 3: An honest smile is worth a plan gone kaput.
