I feel so lucky, being the mother of my two 14.5 y/o kids! I am happy & pleased that they find other interests apart from being computer freaks and book-worms... :D
My girl have recently started to learn beadweaving and she now creates jewelry for herself, and the boy - he cooks!
You know how it goes every time you ask children what they want to be when they grow up - they change their mind often... but, from the time he was 6 or 7 years old, my son always said he wants to be a chef (among other things, of course..) and liked trying new food. He also likes to stay in the kitchen while I cook and gladly gives a hand.
A few days ago he decided to make Sushi! I don't like Sushi so never made it at home and we never went out to eat Sushi in a restaurant, so I am guessing he collected all his knowledge from the internet. He bought all the ingredients needed for these salmon rolls and made everything by himself. I am so proud of him! It looked so delicious that I just had to taste. It was yummy! I had 5 of them... thanks to him I might change my mind about Sushi... :) The only thing he still needs to learn is to clean up the big mess left in the kitchen after cooking, including wiping the walls.. LOL
