I love that Boo is old enough to do some things for himself. At the same time, I love that he still needs my help - picking out a shirt that matches, putting on lotion, shampooing his hair. But at 7-1/2, he can get on the kitchen step stool, pick out a glass or mug, get himself a drink. He'll ask me if he can have a lollipop, and go in the cupboard where I keep his candy.
One morning last week, his dad found him on the kitchen step stool, looking in the cupboard where we keep bowls. On the counter he had my box of baking soda and bottle of vinegar.
