Born to Cook

Henry has declared that he was born to cook. Today he decided to bake a cake. He didn’t ask for permission, he just went for it while unsupervised. Ryan “caught” him as he finished the batter and prepared to bake it. So Ryan helped him pour it in a pan and bake it.

The mess wasn’t that bad. And he did help me clean it up.

The cake came out surprisingly well. And was pretty tasty, if not terribly sweet.

Because I’m always looking for an opportunity to get him to write, 
I asked him to write down the recipe.

I guess he’s been paying attention when I bake!

  1. I love that he did it on his own while no one was around.

  2. I actually didn't love that part. lol. We had a talk about it. He didn't listen. Later he made soup without permission. We had another talk. It didn't take either. I have a hard time walking the line between encouraging this creativity and making sure he doesn't, say, pour a $20 bottle of vanilla into an inedible "potion."

  3. Or burn the house down.
