Hugs and Kisses and Chocolate!

We have a nice big island in our kitchen.  When I bake, that is where I work.  Of course, Isabella likes to be with me all the time, so she is also my baking buddy. I love it. I stand on one side of the island, and she pulls up a chair and watches and "helps" on the other side. 
She knows I don't let her up on the counter when I'm cooking, but she's very very sneaky....

She will say "Mommy? I need a kiss." How can I say no to that? So she has to climb onto the counter to reach me well enough to give me a kiss. 
Then.... "Mommy? I need a hug." Again, I can't turn her down. So up she comes for a hug. Just as I tell her "ok, now sit back down in your chair" she says "Other side??" (she likes to give hugs on both sides. Once with her head to the right, and once on the left.) 
I am a sucker for those hugs and kisses. And she is very generous with them, especially when it gets her closer to my cookies! :)
But this is what happens when I'm baking up a storm and I turn around for a second to get cookies out of the oven.
 She wasted no time.
 She was a girl on a mission....  She saw chocolate!
 She was pretty proud of herself!

Pin It!
