So as you saw my little helper, my 2 1/2 year old daughter was helping me yesterday. More or less spreading flour around. Which she called making “sand castles”. Don’t ask me where she got that from.
Now when you are breading chicken, what comes to mind? Sticky, flour encrusted hands, that everything you touch afterwards is covered in a nasty filmy flour.
Does Sand castles seem a little odd? I guess it can seem like your playing in “sand.”
Then she proceeded to point at the chicken pieces and call them fish. I pointed out that they were chicken, but she said no it’s fish. Laughing all the while.
Leave it to my daughter to make breading chicken an interesting experience.
I would say it is an experience, quite an experience, attempting to do anything in the kitchen with a toddler. She makes things interesting, Why this, why that? What you doing mommy…. A constant thing I hear every day.
So trying to get down to her level and explain things, well you get sand castles and fish.
Have a great weekend!
