V Day

I'm not gonna lie. I'm not a big fan of Valentine's Day. I just don't understand paying for overpriced flowers, chocolates and declaring one's love to another on one day. This "holiday" really sucks for those people that are single. Add that to the fact that I haven't been feeling that great the last couple of days and there ya go. I sucked it up for Gracie though because she loves every holiday and always wants to know which one is next.

While Kyle was taking nap, Gracie and I made cookies. This is where I had to let go of the control, as normally when I am baking, I like to have things a set way. When I bake with Gracie, I usually have her put in the ingredients with me, mix and then I take over the rest. This time, I decided to let her roll the cookies and put them on the sheet. I gotta tell you, this was very difficult but I bit my tongue and allowed Gracie to make super small cookies and super big ones, without my saying a word. The cookies turned out great and in the future, am really going to make more of an effort to let go and allow the kids to take over and have at it.

Daddy brought home something a little special for both kids and Kyle really enjoyed his!
