Over the past several years, my two nieces have worked alongside me on Sundays making tortillas. Abby portions the dough out, and then Bethany forms them into balls. As you moms know, having younger ones apprentice with you takes more time than doing it yourself. But with patience, they learn and can accomplish the task themselves.
I saw this in practice on Sunday. I asked the girls if they wanted to make (as in roll!) the tortillas. They did! They rolled big, beautiful tortillas, and I cooked them. I knew they could, as they’ve rolled before, but it was exciting to see fruit of our work as they did over half of the batch.
So, sweet mommies, take heart. And keep working with your littles!
