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.
