My friends are all sick of hearing it so I’m glad that I can’t see their eyes rolling
when I, once again, mention that I love the book Playful Parenting by Larry Cohen.
I felt challenged to stop using “No” as my quick answer to all things inconvenient
or seemingly dangerous (i.e., do you think paper towels could start a bonfire?).
Instead, I’m stopping to consider if what he’s asking for is really dangerous or just
four year-old curiosity at it’s finest.
So…when he asked what would happen if he hit the “high” button while I was
cooking his egg here’s where we went
and when he asked what would happen if he put spices in boiling water
(he’s fascinated by steam), here’s where he stood for what seemed like forever!
I wish you could have smelled the house. Eeeeeek!
