Huge Help when Mom is sick #KidsInTheKitchen

kids in the kitchen 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.

About Paula

Paula Krueger considers herself a “baby “chef, not because she cooks for babies, but because she’s still learning how to cook. She started this blog after taking Wilton method classes and at that point was more interested in baking. She’s since become more interested in learning to cook as her family has grown. She also covers product reviews and travel as well.

    I am so sorry you’ve been dealing with a sinus infection. I get them often but once I had it where it put me down for about a week. They tried me on 3 meds before getting it to break and clear up. I too was dizzy and couldn’t bend at all and the pressure was horrific! Said it was one of the worse they had seen when x-rays were done. But what a big guy you have there to help you out like that. I’m proud of him for helping his Mommy out like he did.

  2. What a great helper!!
