Aprons in “The Kitchen”

2012 August 15

This is the story of a girl – a girl, an apron and a cinnamon bun.

 Once upon a time, in a kingdom far away called “The Kitchen”, a girl wanted to bake. She put on her “Mommy and Mia Apron” and started to measure.

She stirred, and stirred and stirred.

Her mom helped roll, and they put the dough in the oven. 

(The stirring had gotten a bit carried away.) 

When it came out of the oven, she couldn’t help but laugh for joy. It smelled delicious!

Girl: “But mo-om, we just bought this at the store. I didn’t make it.” 

Mom: “It’s okay to pretend. Don’t tell anyone – they’ll never guess!”

Apron still donned, the girl stared at the cinnamon bun.

“I’m going to eat you now.” She said.

Amazingly, she waited patiently for another photo before taking a bite.

Mmmm… it was worth the wait!

“Mom, can I really eat the whole thing all by myself?”



Well – sortoff. The second happy ending to the story is that the apron and some pint sized baking gear got packed in a box. It got wrapped up and was off to be a birthday present for a small baker down the street.

THE END (for real).

Hopefully my story has not caused the blog a loss of creditability. That said, after a 10-hour work day there is some silliness to be expected! I love my Mommy and Mia apron pattern. I bought it last year and fully intended to make a matchy set for me and my girls, but (even though the fabric for the project has been sitting there for over a year) they haven’t been made yet. I’ve used the pattern twice for gifts though and it is so cute.  The ruffles are perfect and not hard to put on at all. It definitely gives the right amount of satisfaction when you are finished.

(By the way, if you are wondering, this post is not sponsored by any one – I just really like this pattern. You should go buy it too!)

    Love it! I think I may have to use this idea for Zahra’s next birthday party loot bag.
