This is not the way I wanted to start off my first week of Kids in the Kitchen! I had great intentions of having the kids help me out with a great recipe and posting it here with lots of pictures. Real life happened, though, and I developed a sinus infection that makes me dizzy when I stand. We ended up eating out two nights and leftovers another night. Buddy really helped me out, though. He served the other two kids breakfast for dinner and breakfast the next morning without my help. It’s really nice as the kids get older and they can help themselves and others in the kitchen. It’s not something I want to do to take advantage of my son on a regular basis, but it was so nice that he was able to pull out a stool, get down the cereal and bowls and to be able to feed everyone by himself. Not only did it help me, but it helped his self-esteem and made him proud that he could help me out.
As you can see, these posts won’t always be a recipe or be about cooking. Next week, though, I’d really like to share a cute recipe with you. Hopefully I can get that going this weekend so that it’s not Friday morning and I’m scrambling again! Do you have a cute kid’s recipe or story about your kids helping you in the kitchen? How about grocery shopping?
I would love for you to join me and my co-hosts, Melinda at Look What Mom Found…and Dad too! and Sara at Sensibly Sara, each week linking up a post, new or old, that feature the theme Kids in the Kitchen. It doesn’t matter what you are doing as long as you are doing it together and enjoying it and learning something.

- having a tea party
