My sweet baby girl is in the stage of wanting to help Mommy cook. I love having her right there by my side (on a kitchen chair, of course) so I can pass on all my delicious meals! I don't use recipes so its definitely something she'll have to learn over time.
Her only chore is tapping out the soda cans that accumulate on the counter and she does quite well with it too! However, sometimes she gets side-tracked and loves to do the dishes too...although its not required!!
