I loved watching her lift the measuring cups to her lips and make a slurping noise. “Is it yummy?” I asked her. “Yummy!” she replied. Those dry measuring cups are also great because they double as a nesting and stacking toy.

She kept very busy in her kitchen while Travis did his morning school work. I wonder what she put in her imagination soup?
