Shrade is at the stage where he wants to "cook" and "do it by myself." I remember my mom teaching me early on to make my own lunch. I want to do the same for my son, although I think I'm doing it at a much earlier age. He is just thrilled to spread peanut butter and jam on his own bread and cut it. He is so proud to eat the sandwich he made for himself. He also helps to put away the ingredients. I plan to do this more often. Have you taught your child how to make their own lunch?
