Finleigh loves to help in the kitchen. And now that she's NINE, she's becoming especially independent.
Take for instance making salad the other day...
I find that it is better just to let her do her thing. You know... with a table knife. And a salad spinner and a carrot peeler. And we get this pretty salad. With big carrot chunks and... crunchy dirt.
But she was so very proud. SO proud. She went around to every plate at the table and dished up some salad. "Here you gope. Here you gope. Here you gope." Her brothers were thrilled. THRILLED
I was just happy that we avoided a meltdown. And had some exceptionally tasty salad that I didn't have to make.
