Lately Nathan has been asking to help me prepare dinner so tonight I let him pull a stool up to the stove and be my sous chef. It's been raining the past two days so I decided a simple dinner of grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup sounded good. It also sounded like something he could easily assist with, even better.
Nathan was very excited to help me and got right to work. He sprinkled the cheese onto the bread and stirred the soup at the stove. When it was ready, he was so proud of himself and kept commenting on what a good recipe it was and how delicious it was. Ryan on the other hand needs no motivation to eat. He happily ate two bowls of soup and a plate of meatballs and some grapes for dessert.
