The Learning Tower we got for Valentine’s Day is as awesome as I had hoped and dreamed. No more Penelope standing on a chair with the possibility of her cracking her head open at any moment.
She LOVES to stir and help. I put about a cup of dried lentils in a bowl and she stirred them for a good 15 minutes.
And then she thought it would be a good idea to dump my entire bottle of Paprika onto the floor and counter. Oh well, the mess is so worth it. And yes, that is a Cuisinart food processor circa 1983 that I bought at a garage sale for $10 and works like a charm.
I love having her in the kitchen with me and hope it continues for the rest of her life. I hope that she will never have to go through what I went though/still go through in regards to having to teach myself how to cook. I really believe that part of being a good parent is not only feeding our children healthy foods, but teaching our children how to actually prepare and cook healthy foods for themselves one day.
But that’s a topic for another day. Today just want to say GO GET A LEARNING TOWER!!!
