While our 2 sweet grandchildren and their parents were visiting us this weekend, I was awakened at 5:40 a.m. by a gentle tap on my forearm.
“Grandma, I want to bake,” was gently voiced by our 4-year-old granddaughter.
Did I get out of bed at her request? You betcha! We started rolling and shaping crescent roll dough while other members of our home were dreaming sweet dreams.
Oh yes, we discussed fractions while we cut the circle of dough into pie-shaped pieces. She got to use her fine motor skills to roll the dough. And the best part of all was that we had great conversation just getting to know one another even better!!
