Margaret also likes the new bookshelf, and last night she went and got one of her favorite books from last winter – the green cookbook.
And she brought it to the couch to read with me.
That got boring awfully quickly, so she went across the room to the black chair.
But it’s super-hard to read and sit and balance a book when you’re up on the chair, so she slid down to the floor.
And she found a recipe that she liked*, so she came to help me with dinner.
We are very careful about the fire and the kid, but she wants to help, and she needs to learn sometime. But it makes me very, very nervous.
*Of course, she found a recipe for apple tart, and we were having a chicken and green bean pasta, but she didn’t mind.
