More Real Time

Ezekiel, inspired this morning by the play mixer that Luci recieved from G&G Owen as an early birthday present: "Mama, how do you make bread?"

I explained the components common to most simple breads, adding, "And if you want a rich bread, like the one we make for Communion, you add a couple of eggs to the dough."

He was lost in thought for a few moments before coming closer and stage-whispering his plans to make Lucinda a loaf of bread for her birthday today, "I wanna make a rich bread with lotsa eggs."

"How many eggs do you want to add to the dough?" I stage-whispered back.

"A miiiillion eggs.  I wanna make a rich bread-- a very, very rich bread."

I haven't yet found a gentle way to sway him from his plans, and I'm pretty sure he's envisioning something this glorious.

Oh my goodness, that is so adorable! The best part is the love of a younger brother wanting to make something very special for his sister on her birthday. Now, THAT is precious!

Much love!
