The Cheese Chef

There are a few obsessions in the Cupcake household these days, especially by the littlest member.  When a toddler is infatuated with something, you listen, or pay the price.  One huge obsession: cheese.  As soon as that refrigerator door opens, and you hear that sweet pitter patter LOUD thump, thump, thump, you should be prepared to give into the pleas of “CHEEEESE!” or else…

Baby Cakes is also very interested in cooking, or rather, interested in mommy when she’s cooking.  In the past, this has been my excuse not to cook anything complicated, but remember that new leaf i’m trying to turn?  Last night, I had an AHA moment, as my cling-on was getting dangerously close to the stove and oven.  Combining two things that this little man loves: cheese and cooking (or watching his mama cook), I put him to work and gave him a little snack while I was at it.

 

I know, this is probably not rocket science, but finding ways to entertain a toddler so that you can actually complete simple tasks, can make you feel like a genius.  If anyone has other suggestions to keep a highly energetic, mobile, lightening fast, 16 month old occupied, let me know!
