Logan is in Home Ec this term *proud mom moment*
.
.
He is most excited about the cooking part. He has been asking me all week if he could cook something by himself (rather than just assisting me), every day I had a reason for saying "no," like it's 10 minutes till dinner or 20 minutes to bedtime.
.
.
Today an hour before he goes to his dad's he asked again and I said "ok, how about brownies 🍫from my blog? You love them and now you can learn how to make them, plus they're easy!"
.
.
I cannot tell you how much this means to me after all the years struggling with him being literally the pickiest child I had ever met. He eats pretty much any dinner I make now, though I don't cook fancy for the kids, and usually is at least curious and sometimes interested to try new things. He likes asparagus and Brussels sprouts, steak/chicken/pork/salmon/turkey...there was a time I didn't think I could get him to even taste meat to see if he would like it.
.
.
To see him interested, excited, willing to taste and learn is more than I thought I'd ever see. Oh and he watches Food Network more than me (especially things like Chopped, Cupcake Wars, and Cooks or Cons). They will round out the Home Ec term with a classroom Cupcake Wars competition - he's so excited!

  • ashshaugYay, Logan!
  • katyskitchenI love this! 💜My boys have always helped in the kitchen, but my 8 year old really wants to do things on his own lately. One of my goals for the year is to foster that interest and try to say yes more often! We watch a lot of those same shows too.
  • thetoddlersapprenticeWay to go, Logan! So glad he caught the big. How were those brownies!?
  • carolmelampyyou rock, Logan! You have a great teacher right there at home!
  • ad_mccloskeyHow fun!! Amazing he is eating all of that now - He definitely has come a long way!
