Skill Set

My kids are growing up all too fast and taking on more responsibility. On the one hand, I'm grateful for the extra hands. On the other hand, I need to let go of my perception of "how things should be done" and let them do the job without my micromanagement.

Both kids possess basic cooking skills - case in point, my son making "Grandma Eggs" for a snack.

Grandma's Eggs

"Grandma Eggs" are my mother's version of scrambled eggs. Instead of mixing the eggs while they are cooking, you pour them out into a thin layer, let them set, then flip. I guess it's similar to an omelet without the filling. We make them with green onion sometimes.

The latest - getting trained on mowing the lawn:
Instruction Time
It's a Dad - Son teaching moment - because I don't mow the lawn (we're kind of traditional in this area - I don't get involved with the lawn).

Brian managed to maneuver around the mailbox just fine.

Now, if I could get the kids to clean up the kitchen....

I know exactly what you mean about allowing them to do it without micro managing every step. The help is great though. The lawn mowing pics are just too sweet. Definitely a bench mark.

You Have a push mower? It would take the boy about five hours to finish our lawn!
