Yesterday I got to keep my Tator Tot. He is out of school for two weeks and I was so happy to have him for the day! I was extremely happy to have the help in the kitchen. Taylor is a master Chef. I had a bunch of Christmas baking to do so I put the boy to work!
Taylor chopping up Chocolates (with a knife...a sharp knife.. I watched him like a hawk and he did such a good job)Lucy helped too! She chopped up chocolates with a spoon.
Taylor did each piece individually. An hour and a half later he was finished!
I love this little boy.
Speaking of Taylor. Did you know that he knows multiplication? He is only in the 1st grade. I told him that we needed to make 6 batches of cookies with 20 cookies in a batch and then I asked him how many cookies would we have? He said that's easy 120 cookies. After some quick calculations on my fingers I confirmed that he was indeed correct! (I'm not really that slow at math he was just that quick) So then for the next hour I asked the little rain man at least 500 math questions. He answered them all correctly! I then said how do you know multiplication and he said,"well Aunt Mary, It's just like adding"! Smarty pants!
One last story:
Conversation between Jonathan and I
Me: I wonder why Lucy doesn't look anything like me. (because if you haven't noticed she looks just like Jonathan)
Jonathan: That's not true. She doesn't look exactly like me. She has your big beaver teeth!
