Yesterday I posted on FaceBook this sweet little part of my day….
While I was putting laundry away upstairs, I smelled something cooking. Being that I knew it was just my 5-year old and me at home- I immediately booked down the stairs!
Ohhhh, to my surprise- would you just look at this?! She made Eggs in a Nest– ALL BY HERSELF!!!! She got the skillet from above the refrigerator (scary), plugged it in (even more frightening), then made the entire recipe perfectly from start to finish.
My first reaction?! I picked her up and squealed with excitement!!! I was so proud at what she could do all on her own!
She said, “Mama, I’m so proud of myself- I’m like Matilda….you teacheded me!” How could I rain on her parade? I made the decision to march in it and rejoice with her accomplishment.
It did make me nervous to know she was around heat by herself, so we had “the talk” about inviting Mommy to the next cooking session, but I have to say…this was impressive.
Under all the comments, I had some ladies ask what skillet I use- so, I thought to post it here. I love it because it doesn’t flake, is easy to wipe clean, and frees up space on the stovetop. Here’s the description:
