Little Helper

Mommy’s little helper was hard at work in her kitchen while I was in my this morning.

Hmmm, where did I put the brown sugar?

It’s always a good to thing to cut corn off the cob so it doesn’t get stuck in your teeth as easily.

Make sure to use your pizza cutter for it.


Five going on fifteen and loves to use her pink fuzzy blanket as her yoga mat, demands a pink ponytail holder, and wears pink plastic rings to the pool. It’s been ages since I posted pictures of her, and she was just adorable this morning and was melting me all day.

The heat in my kitchen was melting me, too, so went to the pool for a bit and had Taste of the Tropics Smoothies because it’s a scorcher out there.

And now we’re’ off to the beach.

Just stopping in for a quick snack.

I made something kind of like these Magic Eight Bars – recipe coming soon

Do you remember helping your mom or dad or someone else in the kitchen?

I sure do and my grandma, too. Now that I’m the mom, there is nothing better than having my little helper at my side until she starts asking me all kinds of questions when I’m trying to convert Celsius into Fahrenheit in my head and hoping I do it right so I don’t char the goods.

    • her hair grows like a weed – it just grows and grows and her nails. omg. It’s my other FT job just keeping her 20 nails trimmed. Seriously!
