For me: Life is About... teaching my little ones a valuable skill
I love to cook. I find that cooking can be a fun art and, in the end, a very rewarding experience. That's why I enjoy allowing my two-year-old daughter to help me in the kitchen on certain occasions. She not only gets to experience something that doesn't happen all the time (like playing with her toys or reading), but she also learns what cooking means to us as a family... a time to spend together and a method for healthy living.
Allowing her to participate in an adult activity, like cooking, also allows her to understand that as she grows, she takes on more responsibility. I think it's important to instill values and beneficial skills, like cooking, in your child at an early age so that they hopefully not only develop their own passion for it later in life but will also find it very useful as they get older and more independent.
Until she's out on her own, which is definitely not something I want to think about for a very LONG time!!, mommy will just keep appreciating all the help her little one provides in the kitchen. After all, I just love my little helper chef, can't ya tell?!!
