H loves to be involved in all things that has to do with the kitchen weather it be dishes, sweeping or cooking she is right there. I try to find ways to include her in most of the daily activities and meals. Today we had banana pancakes for breakfast and grill cheese for lunch and apple slices for lunch. She helped mash the over ripe bananas, and stirred the pancake mix , added the walnuts to the pancakes in the pan and made sure I knew the bubbles where on the pancakes so I could flip them. For lunch so help hold the apple slicer to slice the apples an buttered some of the bread she was not thrilled about that part but loved sampling the cheese as she added it to the bread.
