When I cook I like to have Alan watching Isabelle. But sometimes it’s just not possible. While I don’t like her to be in the kitchen when there is actual cooking done I do let her in while I’m doing the prep. Lately she has been quite happy to rearrange our cupboards. She will take items out and move them from one cupboard to another. Or arrange them along the floor. Or stack them on top of each other. She’s my little kitchen helper.
