Baking for the soul
One day last week Nikolai and I must have both been feeling a little off, because we were butting heads left and right! By the time Jesse got home, I was more than happy to have him play with Nikolai so I could take a little time to let my crankiness ebb.
After a bit, I decided to bake some cookies, and I was feeling somewhat less crabby so I invited Nikolai to help me.
He was super helpful--carefully pouring the ingredients I measured into the bowl and turning on the mixer when I asked. Before long, we were laughing and eating cookie dough together, and I think we both felt much better.
So let this be a lesson to my future self: when in times of strife, make cookies together. You won't regret it.
