Lessons

Lately, BubTar has been keen on doing things for himself. We've been delighted to discover that six is quite a capable age, every time he tries something new we exclaim, "I guess six year old CAN [insert task here]!" He's quite proud of his list of new accomplishments.

Last night, after eating a piece of toast I made for him, he decided he wanted another, but this time he wanted to do it himself.

He said, "Mom, I want to make my own toast. Can you give me lessons?"

Then he walked to the microwave, opened it, put his slice of bread in and looked at me expectantly.

I said, "Lesson one, you use the TOASTER for toast."

He looked at me sheepishly for a second, grabbed his bread, and said, "I KNEW THAT!"

Sure you did, buddy. Sure you did.

Is he hula-hooping while clogging? I'm impressed. Oh and thanks again for the lessons on making toast.

I'm a little embarrassed to admit that Adam also thinks almost anything can be cooked in a microwave. Guess we use it quite often. :)

And also...I love a boy that can hula!

Love it!

Mine insist on pouring their own drinks. Usually when my back is turned and then all I hear is Uh-Oh.

Damn!

my six year old made his own bagel this past weekend. He buttered it, put cheeze whiz on it AND THEN PUT IT IN THE TOASTER!
