Baking a pie with your children can be a wonderful memory-maker as well as a tasty afterschool activity.

I have reclaimed my love of pie. When I saw some tweets or Facebook updates last week about Pi Day, it reminded me to bake a pie. Eating said pie also reminded me how very MUCH I adore pie. And it’s been too long. Seriously.

Having my five year old help me reminded me how I’ve fallen back into my old ways of efficiency over experiences. She loved helping me! And I’ve been way too stingy in letting her help. And now, looking at this video, I’m reminded how quickly she’s growing! If I don’t indoctrinate her in the love of baking and eating pie now, I may miss my window!

(If you can’t see the video, go directly to the video on my YouTube Channel.)

Today is a fabulous day to bake a pie with your kids. Flour may fly, but the end result will be delicious — and memorable.

    Your video inspired me…just pulled our blueberry pie out of the oven. Now to pick up some vanilla ice cream on the way home from my son’s tball game tonight…

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
