Sprinkle of independence

Every parent can relate when I say my four year old has decided he is capable of doing everything on his own..."by myself" as he puts it.

When he decides he wants a snack of apple sauce with a hearty sprinkling of cinnamon here is what it looks like...

Mmmmm seconds.

But mom,  I like lots of cinnamon!

The cost of helping him feel independent and a lesson in how to clean up.

Noah has loved cinnamon for as long as I can remember.  He used to sprinkle it on fish!  
(That was hard to watch)
