Our 4-year-old chef

(or cooker baker, as she calls herself)

Misty didn't sleep well last night. I woke up for a few minutes around 4:30 a.m., and she was on the couch reading. When I left for work at 6:30, she'd finally fallen asleep. However, Emily usually wakes up around 7:00, so I didn't expect Misty would enjoy much rest.

I just got the story. Around 8:15, Misty awoke to Emily gently rubbing her cheek. "Mommy, open your eyes and wake up, because I know you're so hungry," she said. "I've got the answer to your problem."

On the coffee table next to Misty was a plate of four Pop Tarts along with two cupcake wrappers filled with crumbled up bread.

The miraculous part of this story is that Misty couldn't find any mess in the kitchen. Apparently, Emily actually cleaned up after herself.
