Cranberry Chocolate Scones Recipe
Hi, it’s Liz here with a new episode of our "Food in Motion" video series. I’m sure there’re lots of moms out there reading this. Do you also ask yourself sometimes: when did my kid grow up? Where has the time gone? Yes, I do realize when the pants are too short and the bed gets too small. But in everyday life I’m so wrapped up in chores and the hum of everyday that sometimes I forget what a miracle our kids are. And then something happens, a key moment, and you suddenly remember.
It happened to me just recently when I asked my daughter to help me with this video (below). She has been in lots of videos and always loves it. She was all excited, looked for her apron, got out her little rolling pin, flour and sugar and wanted to start right away. For the last videos we made, I had helped her and we baked side by side, in this one she did everything herself! I only prompted her what to do in which order. She even said “Mommy, just say ‘Camera rolling!’ and then I’ll start.“ She has it all figured out! Editing the video sequences made me amazed and proud. She sparkled when seeing the finished film and was ever so proud that our good friend Taylor wrote and performed a song especially for ‘her’ video. So when we get wrapped up in daily life, let’s try to stop time sometimes and realize how wonderful our kids are.
Video: I dedicated my video to my wonderful daughter. Music by Taylor.
