Isabella loves to help me in the kitchen. She now pulls the chair up near the counters and "helps". Luckily the faucet is a great distraction when I need to use knives or work at the stove. Speaking of knives...I lost a sharp pairing knife a few weeks ago. Not exactly the thing to loose in a house with a toddler, but I've search everywhere (in the kitchen). I feel like I'm loosing my marbles too! Totally weird!
