This is the face of a girl who has learned to make her own microwave popcorn! Yes, her enthusiasm for the whole process strikes terror into my heart as well. There are certain pitfalls to Sasha's popcorn-making efforts, such as the part where she always tries to put the popcorn in the microwave while still encased in plastic... but she hasn't actually melted the microwave or burned down the house yet, so that's a good thing.

She has mastered all other parts of the process, though. She digs a package of popcorn out of the cabinet, scoots a chair over to the microwave, puts the popcorn in, and even knows which button is the magic popcorn button. And unlike her slobby brothers, she also chooses a bowl with care (you never know which bowl will be selected as the popcorn bowl of the day) and puts the popcorn in the bowl when it's done! We just have to train her to remove the popcorn from the bag and put it right-side-up in the microwave and I believe that she will have attained the same level of self-sufficiency as most first-year college students.

And the bib thing was all her idea. Why carry a bowl around when you can have a bowl strapped around your neck?!? Very clever, if I do say so myself.

Want some? She's pretty good at sharing!

Now there is a girl after my own heart. That is one bright little piece of popcorn you've got there.

Oh my word! Take the plastic off the bag and put it right side up in the microwave?! Thank you, Sasha Mostar! Now I know what I've been doing wrong all these years.

I'm really looking forward to trying that popcorn thing again.
