Charming story…I love the Grandma's thoughts. (I seem to be having similar ones these days.) I had to smile at the polka-dots on the hands. :)
Very cute and heartwarming! I can relate to this as well as I had my daughter in later years. I enjoyed this alot and can see my own little energetic 7 yr old flitting around so full of life, making her requests, especially when it comes to baking "chocolate chip cookies"-grin. Though I tire easier these days her childlike ways and love for new adventures ignites a spark of enthusiasm to once again re-engage in life. Well done! Thx for writing this piece. Very enjoyable read!!
I liked how you took this week's topic and molded your story into so much more than just a tale about baking cookies. The MC's thoughts were authentic, and I liked hearing her think through her age and what it meant to get older.

I enjoyed reading this and appreciate you sharing it. :)
