The Littlest Chef

It has been a crazy week/weekend! Ahh... but now everyone... even my psycho dog is sleeping and I have a little peace to myself which I love. So what am I doing? Why blogging of course... and deciding which cloth diapers I am going to order... *sigh*... decisions, decisions. Anastasia has been out of cloth for the past 6 months, but as things are settling down and in light of her new infatuation for the toilet... I am going back to cloth with hopes her being inspired to use the potty. I will let you know how that works out.
Anastasia was initiated into the wonderful world of baking this week, and as you can see, she totally loved it. What a natural! We made apple strudel (which took forever and turned out hard), applesauce, blackberry muffins, cupcakes and cobbler. She helped with the mixing. Everything took ten times as long, but it was way more fun (and messy) for both of us. I am trying to come up with more ways she can help me with daily tasks because it helps me by being able to watch her and I think she learns valuable life skills.
Well, this is a seriously quick update and I need sleep! Ciao!

Clare!! I just re-started blogging (after trying to decide if it was for me or not...) and saw your comment from ages ago! Anastasia is so gorgeous! I miss you guys too! I told Amy the other day that I want to restart a crafty group. I posted on our community thread about it, but so far nothing. :( Anyway, thanks for linking to my blog! Hopefully there will be more to come! I have to figure out how to add you to mine now!
