"Like Hundred Dollars"

Tonight the girls were helping me get dinner ready and Hayden found some cash on the counter. She held it up to the light-as if to make sure it isn't counterfeit. This child doesn't even "get" what money is and how it's used, let's go a step further and say that she doesn't even know what written numbers look like....but she sure does know how to tell if the green back is real or not.
Here they are working together to peel, core, and slice the apple that we needed for tonight's dinner.
Then they got to enjoy the peel and the core of the apple. Layne took the peel and....
Hayden took the core.
As soon as the weekend baking begins my stand mixer comes off of the shelf of my kitchen island. That means it's "pretend time" for the girls. Normally it's just Hayden who sits in the little cubby and pretends that she's the mom and talks to all of her pretend kids that live in the wooden walls of the box. But today Layne joined in the fun and since she watches sister play pretend she just joined right in with the jibber jabber.
