As part of our back-to-school changes, we developed a chore chart, with NB rotating through several new responsibilities. One of those responsibilities is cooking dinner. For his first meal, he made mac & cheese from a recipe. He did great, had a good time, and invited Grandma and Grandpa over to share.
I was working on another chore at the time, and when he had put the dishes in the oven to bake, he called me into the kitchen. “Poppa, aren’t you proud of me? Go wahs your hands and give me a hug!”
