No, I did not get my daughter an Easy Bake Oven for Christmas. I bake with her in our real oven. I know that just saying this makes me sound "superior" but that is not what I mean. First, this oven is recommended for children 8 and older. Olivia is 4. Second, it is plastic. Third, I have no idea what kind of chemicals and preservatives are in those cake mixes that require you to just add water. Okay, I sound superior, but I don't care. It is gross.
That being said, my daughter was delighted and elated and excited to have this magic oven, so this morning was Easy Bake Oven day.
I know that she will remember her Easy Bake Oven and we made memories together today. That is all that matters. I can still think it is gross, as long as I successfully hide my disdain from my daughter. As you can see by her face, it was an enjoyable experience for her!
