One of our goals for this year is to take BK on a date once a month. Sure, we do things outside of the house, all of the time. Play dates and dance practice, trips to her favorite restaurant or the park. But, we wanted to be sure to carve out some one-on-one dedicated time with our girl this year. And of course, we’ll continue the tradition as Jud grows.
For January, I signed BK up for a cooking class. My girl loves to cook! It’s one of our favorite things to do in the evenings while Jud takes a nap. I thought a cooking class where she could take home her own set of tools when the class was over was right up her alley.
And she loved the fact that our neighbor Brayden went too!
Her favorite part was getting to use a knife. I let her have plenty of tasks in the kitchen. She mixes, measures, rolls out dough with her cute green rolling pin. She doesn’t slice and cut, I normally take care of that part. At the cooking class, she was able to cut up fruit and she was thrilled. We had a long talk about only using her “special red knife” and she’s super excited about using it during our next kitchen adventure.
They also made some gooey Oreo balls, and I definitely had to refrain from taking one of those. Oreos are a favorite in our house, and I caught BK sneaking Oreos several times, no surprise there.
We had a great time and she was excited to tell Allen all about our adventure one she came home.
