Sofia’s becoming quite the little helper. She loves to have me wheel in her high chair when I am cooking, explaining the steps, narrating the ingredients, apologizing for the swearing when I burn things. She rambles back, telling me what I am doing wrong, suggesting thyme instead of sage and making sure I watch the timer. Today she helped me put together a bookcase. Ajay woke up and said she was in training. The Duvoisin girls are usually the putter-togethers. Usually people complain when something comes in pieces, needing to be put together first. We rejoice and say it is like getting two gifts. If we feel like having a real party we throw out the instructions and see what we can do on our own. Today during bean’s training we followed the directions. She did great and we’re heading back to Target tomorrow to see what else we can put together. She is now on the floor reading Real Simple. Wonder what she is making tonight!
