When my children were growing up I would bake bread with them. They helped with each step of the bread baking process and loved puching the dough down. They had their own bread pans, area to kneed the dough, and form the loaves. They would have flour everywhere and my kitchen was a disaster area when we were finished. But the look of pride on their faces and their excitement when the bread came out of the oven is something I will never forget. When my daughter had her first child she told me that she "wants her son to have the same memories of me as she has". When I asked her to explain she said, "You know Mum...baking bread, cookies, cakes, strawberry short cake, making pierogi, and all the stuff we did". And guess what each time I visit them in Florida or they visit me in Pennsylvania we bake something that he chooses and now my grandson who is now 8 years old has a some of the memories my daughter has. The best part is that he tells others about the food he makes with Grandma.
