I have a little helper in the house. C has been helping me all around the kitchen lately. Anytime I go in to cook, he wants the little step stool so he can be at the counter with me. I think it has to do with the time I let him up there to help me make pie crusts... or a cake... I can't remember. I was baking something.
I can go in just to put some dishes in the dishwasher, and he has the pantry open for me to get the step stool out for him. I let him play in the sink with some bubble water the other day.... Oh my did he have a great time. I had water everywhere on the counters, on the floor and even in a cookie sheet that was on the counter. I loved seeing his little mind work to pour from this container to that. I just wish it was a little less messy for me to clean up. :D
He also loves to help me empty the dishwasher. He will take out one thing at a time, tell me what it is and hand it to me. I think his favorite part is the silverware. :D
Yesterday, I attempted a trial run of making homemade yeast rolls from a recipes I had gotten from my Aunt. I want to make them for Thanksgiving dinner. Anywho, as soon as C saw the flour come out... Oh my it was on!! He opened the pantry for me to get the step stool and he was ready to bake. I gave him some flour, tablespoons, sifter, cookie cutters, and measuring cups, he was in Heaven. There was flour EVERYWHERE.... I don't think I got it all, but with the baking that I am going to be doing in the next few weeks... what's a little more. :D
I did order for him a Little Partners Learning Tower today. It will be so much safer than the step-stool in the kitchen. I can't wait for it to get here. I have my fingers crossed that it will be here like sometime this coming week. :D
