My Budding Chef

I cannot walk into the kitchen these days without my kid wanting to cook something. He has found a new love in cooking and preparing his own food, and he wants to do it all. the. time. Take last night for instance, when he announced at 9pm that he was "just gonna cook me some eggs." Or how about the hundred times a day he wants to bake a cake. And heaven help you if you spread butter or cream cheese on ANYTHING without first asking him if maybe he would like to do it with his favorite red plastic butter knife. It's something you'll only forget to ask once. Any less gets you a meltdown and a face that says you must surely have an utter lack of regard for his majesty's feelings. But he wears an apron (thank you Aunt Mary) and he loves to be helpful, so we're having a good time, and we're baking lots of cakes.

Even though his "kitchen" piece is no longer in the living room, I'm delighted that he WANTS to cook. Baking is definitely in the Raymonds-good to see it in the next generation! Time to get a photo when the Chef is at work!
