Claire was amazing this morning. I brought a few different toys into the kitchen, and she was entertained long enough for me to finish the sugar cookie dough. I will bake them tonight when Darren is home. I tend to wind up covered in flour, and I think its better to have help with Claire.
Claire spends a lot of time on the kitchen floor while I make dinner, but for the first time today she found the drawers. While I love watching her discover new things, I have a feeling this discovery will be responsible for some tears down the road. Thankfully, we avoided smashed fingers today.
This was my clue that she needed a bottle and some attention. Hopefully, I'll get back to the baking soon, or else there is always tomorrow!

Generously flour work surface, rolling pin and cookie cutters. Roll a portion of the dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut out cookies and bake on greased cookie sheets at 375 for 8-10 minutes.
