My kids all love to cook. Lately they have been wanting to do a lot of cooking and they want to do it by themselves. They all especially love to make pancakes. I think it's because they like flipping the pancakes over. It's kind of nice because if we are having a crazy morning then I can ask whoever is ready to come and flip the pancakes or scramble the eggs or whatever. Very nice!
S has become very independent lately. Several times I've found him in the kitchen making himself a sandwich or some toast, or pouring himself a bowl of cereal, or anything else he thinks he can do on his own. It's so cute to see him doing these things. I can't believe how big he's getting and quickly it's happening.
