PJ helped me make dinner again last night. She helped me season the fish, wash the rice and measure the water to put back in, wash the sugar snap peas and wash the zucchini. Her love of cooking must be from both of her grandma's because they both cook all the time (and amazingly I might add). Who knows, it could also be because of "Ratatouille" (hence the "little chef" name I gave her) ;) I don't mind though. It keeps her busy, makes her feel important...and makes her want to eat everything since she helped make it. She not only finished every last bite.....she asked for seconds :)

While dinner was cooking I set up her paints to keep her busy while I cooked the veggies. In between cutting, stir frying, etc, I snapped a few pics.......
Cindy - If you're reading this, that little bunny painting is for you (she added more to it after this - lol). She said "this one is for Cindy because she likes bunnies. How do you spell "love" mommy?" :) hahahha
Have a fantastic weekend everyone! Have fun, be creative, spend quality time with your kids, teach them, inspire them and most of all, LOVE them :)
Also, *HAPPY BIRTHDAY* to one of the most wonderful mothers I know, Carolyn......who is the amazing mother of PJ's equally amazing godfather Alyasha.....whose birthday is tomorrow! :) HAPPY BIRTHDAY to BOTH of you! Hope you are having a wonderful time together in NYC :) We love you guys!! :)
