I was in the kitchen preparing dinner and chopping up some left over chicken to make chicken salad for tomorrow and Zayit came in and wanted to help "make a recipe." He hopped up into his Learning Tower to check out what was going on. Tonight was salmon burgers. He was very excited that a "button" was involved. Yup, that's right, Zayit got to man the food processor. He was in heaven! I piled all the ingredients into the container, put the lid on and he went to town with the pulse button. Giggles a plenty!
After we were done making a mess with the food processor and salmon patties were created, I started to clean up. Zayit noticed a silver bowl on the counter that had some wet, brown sand-stuff in it. He immediately went to put his hands in it to play. My first instinct was to quickly stop him before he made a big mess and shout "NO!"... but I resisted and let him investigate his world. He had never seen coffee grounds before. These were used, and in a bowl to dry out for a project we will be doing this weekend (stay tuned for that post - it will be FUN!)
He did this for a good 15 minutes before he announced it was time to wash hands. I was so impressed that he kept all the coffee grounds in the bowl and made NO MESS!!! WOW!!!
You never know when a fun new experience will happen!
