My daughter, Sydney, is turning 8 years old in two weeks. She is getting so big! She is very independent, a typical first born child! She likes to learn how to do some of the things that I do as a mom. She wants to do everything by herself.
I have an allergy that prevents us from having traditional Playdoh in the house. So I make the play doh myself in my kitchen. I wrote about it in this blog post.
Sydney wanted to try to make the playdoh all by herself. She did really well with it. She read the recipe and followed the directions. I set the ingredients up on the counter for her and she was able to measure everything herself.
I turned the stove on for her and she stirred the playdoh herself. I no longer need to remind her that the stove is hot. She is responsible and careful. As you can see in the picture, she was very proud of herself! I love that she wants to do things herself and be a big girl.
