It is true that I asked Debi how old Toren has to be before I can have him mow the lawn (we’re still negotiating that one). I don’t mind mowing it, but it sure would be nice to have someone else mow it for free!
Of course, Debi will tell you I plan on making Toren work like a slave (which is only partially true), but what she misleadingly won’t tell you is that she is actually a big fan of letting kids help as she firmly believes that kids want to help, not just watch (we’ll see; thoughts anyone with kids?).
So, taking her advice, I put Toren to work the other morning helping me make New York style crumbcake for breakfast:
Admittedly his contribution was a bit minor, but it was nice to have ready access to my spatula when I needed it.
