My Sidekick

Here is my 3-year old on Thanksgiving Day. She's stirring the Corn Souffle' right before we put it into the casserole dish. All of my children were helpful that day. The boys peeled all the potatoes and set the table.

Yesterday afternoon, my daughter began to lobby for a trip to McDonald's for nuggets and fries. She hadn't felt well for almost a week and although I offered her a variety of tasty treats, she hadn't been interested in eating all week. So, when she began dreaming of chicken nuggets, I decided to make her dream come true.

When the last baby left and my husband arrived, she and I ventured into the dark in our quest for junk food. While we sat in line, I said to her, "Hey, look at all the cars. Can you count them?" Without pause, she said, "uno, dos, tres." This is evidence of her love of "Dora". Then, when I finished placing my order, she piped up from the backseat, "AND A COOKIE!"

Ah, that's my girl!

Well, we should get her and Mr. P into the kitchen together, he loves to help me cook as well!

Good mom for giving in to the Chicken McNugget craving. As long as it is not their daily diet, I say live it up once in a while.
