Grandma’s Helper

Grandma’s Helper

I love to go to Grandma’s house

And help her with her baking.

She never seems to get upset

With the mess I’m always making.

I help her measure out the milk,

Then slowly add the butter.

And while she stirs the dough up good,

I get the cookie cutter.

She rolls the dough out on a board

And then begins to cut,

And next we sprinkle all the tops

With sweets and coconut.

She puts them in the oven then

And says they’ll be out soon.

And now the part that I like best—

I get to lick the spoon!
