|Lauryn is helping me prepare cheese quesadillas to go with our Cowboy Soup.|
She watches everything I do like a hawk, and wants so badly to get her hands in there to do exactly as I am doing. It has been a tremendous lesson in patience for Lauryn's mama! She's learned that she cannot touch my knife, but she places her left hand over mine or on my wrist and the other one goes behind her back. Until her hands are in place, my knife doesn't move. When the chopping/slicing/dicing is done, I move the knife away and she moves the prepped vegetables into the bowl, pot or skillet where they belong.
In these pictures, she's helping me make cookie dough.
|She always has to have a hand on my arm so she can feel like she's helping.|
|"I lock it!"|
