Potatoe Man

I have a little chef that helps me when ever I get in the Kitchen. When Sweet-boy hears the Kitchen Aid mixer scrapping across the counter he comes running. For him it means, "I get to make cookies with mom."
But his favorite thing to help me with is cutting up potatoes and making rolls.

Tonite for dinner he cut up the potatoes, placed them in the pot and chopped them some more.

Then he worked on making those wonderful buttery crescent rolls.


It looks difficult but I think he was ready for the camera to go away.


I love having a little chef in the kitchen. I remember my brother always cooking up a storm and to this day he is a really good cook. Maybe Sweet-boy will take over and I can just show up at the table for a wonderful meal.....that would really be something for a mom to enjoy.

What a sweet kid! Isn't it fun when they want to help. Harness that desire because I have a teenager who avoids the kitchen at all costs, but my little ones still love to help. Cute picture of the two of you!!!

Not only that, but what a great catch he'll be someday! My husband can cook when he HAS to, but it's not his favorite thing.

Gabe likes to help with cookies on a stick. That's about it so far.

I like that potato cutter; where'd you get that? What's it called?

Awww, he reminds me so much of my two boys. As soon as that mixer gets going it they come RUNNING!

I love the apron on him. SO CUTE! :)

I hear that real men do wear aprons. Especially ones that are 5 times too big and have snowmen on them.

So maybe if I start now with the redhead, by the time he's 8, I won't have to cook any more meals! Perfect!

I just noticed you put Thriller on your playlist.

You are so funny.

Next we'll be getting out the red jackets and the one glove and moonwalking across our blogs. Hmmm...not a bad idea for a post.
