I love that our children like to cook. It makes me feel like I have indeed taught them something. For some reason, the messes that get made in the kitchen don't bother me like the ones around the house.
And even though the breakfast making extravaganza ended up with a plate being knocked off the counter and breaking into one thousand pieces...it's still worth it to me. And I got to sit on the couch and rest while little ones were being fed.
