The Parakeet was able to score a Groupon to this cool place a few months ago. She finally coordinated with a friend and they took Little O and Little Z to a class together where they made Sweet Potato Black Bean Quesadillas. YUM! The kids were all 2 and 3 years old. Their parents helped them, of course -but there was a lot for the child to do and the moms agreed they would definitely recommend the place, especially with a Groupon. O told the teacher he didn’t like every ingredient – sweet potato, garlic, onion, black bean – but always helped chop it. Then, when his quesadilla came out of the oven, he took a bite looked up at her and said, “I DO like it” He was as surprised as everyone else.
That same week, GB had sent a box of new toys and other fun things to help Little O get through the last of winter. Hopefully. It included a wonderful child’s baking set with real utensils, pans and a great Teddy Bear cookie cutter. One Chilly morning the Parakeet and Little O decided to make spring cookies and pretend it wasn’t cold outside. They made bunnies, teddy bears, flowers, and stars. Little O picked the color orange for some of the icing. With orange and white icing and a variety of random sprinkles, they decorated a full batch of spring cookies. Below is a video of a moment or two of that activity – Little O seems to be very careful with the sprinkles. It might be because the night before he had learned to “pinch” the salt and pepper during his cooking class.
