{36 reasons} Independent Pancakes

The other morning, David asked for pancakes.

I love to cook. I love to make breakfast (after all, my Pinterest meal boards are called "My Favorite Meal" and "Not Breakfast"). But I thought this was a perfect opportunity to start him on cooking things other than baked goods.

And so I used the simplest pancake recipe I've ever made, to which Rebecca introduced me.
And I stepped back. Pretty much gave directions and let him do all the work.
And guess what?
He made pancakes.

Now he can even make dinner. Because everyone loves breakfast for dinner, right?

I'm aiming for total self-sufficiency...

Blessed are You, O God, Ruler of the world, who has given us skills and has enabled us to pass them onto our children, and who has helped to balance dependence and independence as our children grow, and who has brought me to this day.
