Kindergarten Sous Chef

If I do no other good in this life, at least I have had a part in creating this one:

He didn’t want to speak because the onion fumes irritated his mouth–this in addition to his eyes and nose, but he didn’t have a “gaping maw” goggle on hand.

Since he’s certainly not getting off the hook as my kitchen helper, I guess we know what to get him next Christmas.

A mouth plug.

There's this game put out by the American Girl company called "300 Wishes"--I really like playing it because then I get to marvel, "Wow, it's like I'm a real live American girl who has 300 wishes, and that doesn't suck, especially compared to being a dead one with none."


  1. I can’t say as I blame him on the onion and irritation thing. My daughter Mandy would tell him to run for his life is onions are involved in ANYTHING though! Considering his age, I think he did pretty darned good with the chopping. Maybe he does have a food prep future. Peace.

  2. well, we don’t want the poor kid to die so maybe we get him a gas mask. those things crack me up anyway.

  3. Now that is preparation!

    Next time save the poor little chap by keeping the onions in the fridge and then chop really quickly… for me.

  4. Paco is an absolute masterpiece. Your kids ROCK! 🙂

    I’ve been away from the blogosphere a long time and had to jump back in here first. I’m diggin’ the addition of video!It adds a whole extra layer of awesomeness and just makes me realize that I wish we had a Jocelyn in our neighborhood. Oh, and I would have voted for circles, btw, but they were both nice.

  5. it’s so great – he is apparently a ” there are no problems, only challenges” kind of guy.. :o))

  6. That is terrific! Between the goggles and the gi, that kid knows how to chop his onions!

  7. Agh couldn’t view the video (or is it a picture?). Guessing from the comments that I’m really missing out.

  8. Oh my heavenly tacos!
    This made me giggle. I was so afraid he would lose a digit, but alas, he is a true master with the k-nife.

  9. Onions – $.89/lb. Paco chopping – Priceless. The beauty is that, given your voluminous blogging, by the time he figures out that this is online for the world to see, there’s no way he’ll find it!
