My mini patience self tests
So, in keeping with my embark on a newer more patient self I am subjecting myself to certain tests of sort. I am taking the approach of confronting the causes of my impatience (lack of control) head on. So last night when The Turkey started pitching a fit because Ollie was doing something she couldn't do I distracted her instead of yelling and blowing up over the fit (which obviously has NEVER worked). I was cooking and I knew she would love to take over for me. So I set her up a chair and she made our turkey and dumplings (with some help). I let her do as much of the cooking as was feasible and it turned out pretty good. She didn't quite put enough salt in it for my taste, but Hubby thought it was salted fine. So my little chef made our supper. I have never seen a toddler so into cooking before. It is awfully cute.
