I was getting ready to take a nap with Jonathan (what a wonderful thing a scheduled nap is!) when Ian asked if we could make tortillas. I told him that I was getting ready to get Jonathan settled into his nap and couldn't right then.
He said, "We can do it, Mom! All by ourselves!"
So, what could I say to that? I gave Abigail the recipe and told her that she was in charge. I knew I'd be back down before the resting stage of the recipe was over so they wouldn't be operating the stove without me.
I came back down, twenty minutes later, after my power nap to find an almost perfect bowl of resting dough. I had them add just a little bit of water then they got to rolling, stretching and browning.
After they finished browning them all and having a little snack, they asked if they could make them into chips to have nachos for dinner.
I know who is making the tortillas from now on! Though, I don't think we make quite as much of a mess when we do it together.
