When it is chilly outside I like to stay inside, turn the oven on, and bake. Lately, I have had a petit baking partner: my three year old son. He loves to bake with me for the obvious reason – licking the beaters. I love when he bakes with me because I use it as an opportunity to teach him counting, measuring, sharing, patience, and the importance of real food-based nutrition. I know my son and I are creating loving memories together that include warmth, aromas, teamwork and enjoying our favorite desserts together. What I also love about baking with my son are all of the adorably sweet aprons for kids.
About Debbie Jovel, Contributor
I am a mom who has spent the last 20+ years working in the fashion Industry; my passion for fashion truly is 24/7. I have directed and managed Creative Design teams for global brands designing and developing: children's wear; women's wear; hard goods; beauty products; accessories & footwear. I love writing for Babiekins as my outlet for all things petit because I get to share my favorite fashions, decor and playthings with my fellow moms -- a result of my constant obsession with pinning and trend research which really never shuts off! I consider myself very "pinteresting" because I am always on the search everywhere for inspiration. Together, my family and I (my husband, son, dog and cats) love to explore and travel to experience and discover everything and anything new. I am a Minnesota girl who moved to New York City, then San Francisco, then Germany and can't wait to see where in the world our next adventure will be. Yes, I am busy; but I enjoy every second of motherhood, designing, traveling, exploring, writing, living, loving and laughing. You can find me on Instagram @petit_swag.
