“Mommy, I want to make something with you!”
The words echoed through the kitchen and melted my heart. It had been weeks since I had allowed my toddler into the kitchen with me.
With my husband’s decision to quit his job, our routines had been thrown off. We were finding our new normal, and the fun baking activities got put on the back burner.
Now my 3-year-old wanted to make something with Mommy.
He didn’t care what we made. He just wanted to be with me. And honestly? I wanted to be with him too.
