I guess my favorite kitechn story is that my youngest son thinks he taught himself to cook. Since we unschooled and did little formal schooling, we used things like cooking to learn fractions, addition, subtraction, etc. My son would pull up a chair and help cook from the time he was probably four. He thinks since we didn’t have lessons that he had to teach himself to cook. Well I try to tell him that since I cooked a lot from scratch and he was often with me while I cooked, that is how he learned how to cook. I tell him if we were a family that just warmed up TV dinners, ate from boxed mixes and ate junk food all the time then it would have been a LOT harder for him to just teach himself to cook all by himself. LOL. My mom refused to let my sister who is two years younger than me in the kitechn when we were growing up and no joke my sister did not even know how to boil water when she got married. She is an awesome cook now and she literally did have to teach herself to cook. Anyway he’s young (just 23) so I know one day he’ll come to his senses.
