Emmett baked cupcakes yesterday

Emmett has been back in the kitchen baking up a storm. He baked strawberry swirl cupcakes and topped them with diced licorice. They were delicious. I was able to exercise some self control and only had two. I’m actively avoiding things like this but I also want to sample what my kids take the time to create. I’m really proud of Emmett. Baking seems to come natural to him and he’s really good at it. 😊


I’m so proud of my kids

I thought this was really cool and wanted to share before getting lost in my day. As you may or may not know, Elliott and Emmett have found that they love cooking and baking. Elliott's likes to cook and Emmett likes to bake. They both picked these up during COVID lockdown and do a really good job. Yesterday, Emmett decided to bake peanut butter cookies. He hasn't really baked in a little while and he's been having a but of a rough time lately. Anyway, he decided to bake yesterday afternoon and they turned out delicious. I will admit to eating more than I should have, especially considering I'm avoiding carbs but someone once told me to eat it if the kids make it and just forget the carbs. That…


My son baked a double layer cake

I meant to share this the other day and I forgot. I wanted to get this out there because there's so much negative right now, it's even more important to focus on the glimmers or positive moments. I shared the other day that Emmett had baked cutout cookies, all by himself. He did amazing and I'm so proud of him. Elliott checked something off his COVID bucket list as well. He baked a double layer cake, all by himself. He's been wanting to do this for a while now and he accomplished this the other day. I want to also applaud him for letting Emmett color the icing. Elliott wanted to do this all on his own but Emmett wanted to help. Instead of pushing him away, Elliott allowed him…

I think I’ve created a monster

The boys have become very fond of baking and they are wanting to do so every single day. It's a bit much and while I'm excited they are trying new things, I think I've created little baking monsters. 😂 Yesterday, Emmett decided he wanted to bake brownies and that he wanted them to be chewy. When he was done, he brings me a plate with a huge slab of brownie on it. There was a time when I would have pounded that brownie down but not anymore. I ate about a quarter of it and thought I was gonna die. It was delicious but so heavy and I don't really eat that much anymore. That said, I'm so proud of the boys but we need to limit this a bit.…


My kids are learning to cook

Okay. I'm really trying to get back into writing more about our daily lives. There's a ton of things I don't talk about because I just lack the energy to put those experiences into words. I'm seeking to change that and as season 3 of the podcast comes to a close, I have more time to write. The podcast is so time consuming but I'm finishing up episode 40 for release today or tomorrow and I'm done for the year. With that said, here's some cool shit I want to share with you folks. ☺ It's no secret that the pandemic has been a nightmare for all of us this year. We now have a vaccine but it won't be widely available for many months. That's still a hugely positive…
