I got a taste for what life is like as your kids become more independent (and capable) yesterday.
My preschooler helped me make cookies. Funny thing was, she was actually helpful. She even commented at one point, "This is a lot easier with just two of us, isn't it?" I think referencing the fact that her little brother was napping at the time so it wasn't the usual moderate chaos that cooking with a 2-year-old will inevitably bring.
It even made a teeny tiny part of me a little sad about the fact that they do grow up quickly. Mostly, though, it was just a really nice time together.
