Dear Diary,
I love the smell of the bakery while I’m sleeping. All night, Papa and Mama were making rolls and loaves of bread to sell today. Even though I have lived above the bakery in this apartamento all my life, my nose never gets tired of the smell of bread baking in the ovens. Delicioso! Even better, Papa was baking marranitos, the little gingerbread pig cookies, and the smell of spices was in my dreams. I dreamed I was eating the biggest cookie in the world! Ay mio! I can hardly wait for breakfast this day! Then I must hurry to school, and Papa and Mama and my sister Gabriella will all go to sleep while my brother Carlos and his wife Maribel run the shop.
