Sometimes it's the little moments, the stolen Norman Rockwell-type moments, that provide the best respite in the storm that is parenting. Yesterday afternoon I fulfilled a promise to our youngest to bake a recipe out of this cookbook:

With "Oh My God Charlie Darwin" by The Low Anthem as a soundtrack, it was the perfect afternoon.
