Margaret is missing her Montessori school, by which I mean that she is missing having something organized to do between 9 and 12 every day, and certainly missing all of the practical things that she likes to do.
So a few days ago* we took advantage of Ellie's afternoon nap to cook together.
Margaret inspected the instructions very carefully.
And thought very deeply about them.
Thankfully, she allowed me to interpret them, because she was demanding that we have two different measuring cups because that's what the back said.
Also, her face probably gave it away, but we made brownies, and she thought they were good.
*Well, a few weeks, because it's been a while since I blogged, but it sounds better this way.
