So I have the most eager kitchen helpers in the world, which, as I'm sure you could guess, slows breakfast/lunch/snack/dinner to a halt. Usually I try to distract the kids with objects found in the kitchen like, whisks, silicon baking cups, wooden spoons, measuring cups, anything that will keep them out of my hair and my way for, oh say, three minutes. Last night in desperation I handed Elliott the closest thing I could find. It happened to be a big fat yam. Now this kept him busy for quite a while but unfortunately for me it was so cute I had to stop and take pictures and watch him try to figure out what to do with this giant piece of uncooked food. Eventually he did get a couple bites out of it. Note to self: wash before handing raw produce to Elliott.
