Lunch Bucket LOVES to help us cook. Mostly she just climbs up on the chair and pretends to stir while eating whatever is in the mixing bowl. She’ll also eat whatever is on the counter – especially if it’s powdery. She’ll tank down on flour if we let her.
Tootles has no interest in helping. He just wants to watch – which would be fine, if he didn’t INSIST on watching from above. In other words, he has to be held in order to be happy while we’re cooking – preferably the one who is most busy at it. He will take ocassional diversion however, if he can manage to get a drawer open. Especially if there are knives, bags, or some other dangerous item inside.
I’ve tried stuffing the drawers with toys and stuffed animals, but he just pulls them out, plops them on the floor, and digs deeper until he can find a real treasure – such as the butcher knife.
