Just Like Daddy!

Braxton was so funny today! I just had to post this too.

Braxton loves to raid our closet. He pulls John's t-shirts off the hangers and throws them on the floor. He takes all of my shoes off of my shoe rack, and usually wears them around for awhile. He tries John's shoes on, but usually gets too frustrated with them, because they are so much bigger. Today however, Braxton found John's "fleep-flops" (aka flip-flops), and came out carrying John's yellow shirt. He wanted to wear it... and here is the result...

Kitchen Gadgets

If you are ever in need of figuring out what certain kitchen utensils/gadgets are used for... I have a very smart 2 1/2 year old that would be happy to help out. While I was making our lunch today, Braxton cleaned out one of my kitchen drawers. As he pulled out each thing, he would either ask about the item, or exclaim what it was used for.

Here are a few of the items...
This one is pretty easy. Braxton didn't know that they were called measuring cups, but he did know that we use them to make "cake-cake" (aka pancakes). We have pancakes for breakfast an average of 2-3 times a week. Braxton would eat pancakes, and only pancakes, for every meal if we would let him!
Although we have only made cookies a few times with Braxton, he knew immediately that these were for cookies! I could hardly believe my ears... I never realized how closely he watches me in the kitchen.

Braxton pulled this utensil out and told me what he thought it was for. I tried to explain to him that it is called a whisk and goes to my hand mixer... but he was determined that it was used for singing songs. I have no idea where he would get that from... I swear on my life that I have never used anything of the sort to sing songs. I tried to get a picture of Braxton using it as a microphone, but he wouldn't let me take his picture with it. It made for a good laugh anyway!
