Baking Bread in our home. Starts with warming the milk and softening the butter. Pouring ingredients into Bread Machine pan. Turning on the Dough Cycle. Waiting an hour and a half for mixing and first rise to complete.
Sometimes we turn the dough into Hoagie Rolls, Dinner Rolls, or Pizza Crust. We let the dough rise again after shaping. Then bake. YUM!
Now...most everyone knows that I have parented Brielle a lot different that I parented the boys (especially Josh). I was 19 when I had him and 31 when I had Brielle, giving me lots of time to grow up and think about the choices we make as parents and how they affect our little ones. I've learned a lot, but I keep on learning EVERY SINGLE DAY and I am willing to change things if it is in the best interest of my family.
So, one of the things I've allowed Brielle to do (as pictured above) is to help as often as she is willing, which is pretty much all of the time. Seriously. People tell me this will pay its reward later...but I have always wondered (through near tears) When????
Then, the other night I noticed something. She's wasn't doing a bad job.
It wasn't perfect, but it was actually helpful. What??????????????????
Below is a video that I captured for my nephew from Brielle. It was just too sweet not to share with my friends. I hope it makes you smile!
