I can do it, Mommy
Here's my little girl, perfecting her culinary skills. I do feel a little sorry for the banana...
At which age are children typically able to handle a knife? She’s never cut herself, and I always try to keep an eye on her, but I can’t help but worry a bit. They tell me Dave used to cut an apple on a stool with a sharp knife when he was about three. It was a regular snack, but never as popular as the cheese sandwiches which he’d microwave on his own.
Its amazing how little ones can handle tools. They learn by observation, and with a little instruction and supervision, its neat to see them succeed easily on their own.
