An underlying goal of all my gardening and cooking is to convey both to my children as normal and essential. I am a pretty light touch when it comes to directing their activities in his regard, however. I want it to be an assumed part of their lives.
So how happy was I when child number 2 whips out the above platter of play-doh appetizers for her school’s 100 day project? Totally her own idea and she did it like 2 weeks ahead of time. Crazy. And beautiful.
and he knows that they are in the front lawn. He don’t need no stinkin’ clothes to go get them.
One of my goals as a parent is to continue the appreciation for basic cooking skills that I grew up with. Or more precisely, an expectation that the food I eat comes from a process called cooking, which more often than not, I carry out. With that in mind this picture of the FYG progeny #2, caught in a spontaneous, but intense, state of play-cooking is heart warming.
