Alex asked if he could make pancakes for breakfast this morning, and Sarah decided to help him.  I let them do it on their own as much as possible.  (I did have to step in at one point when Alex was making egg-replacer using cups of water and oil rather than tablespoons…)  There was surprisingly little mess, and Evan said they were so tasty, he ate five.

Maybe I’ll be able to start sleeping in and letting them look after breakfast…




Not to be outdone…

Yeah, so I’m not the only one who doesn’t know how to use a sharp knife without hurting myself.  D’Arcy insisted on taking over while I was cutting up the squash for supper tonight because I was making him nervous.  It wasn’t long before he had sliced the top of his index finger and was looking for a band aid.  I think we’d better take these knives back before we cut something off!!
