Weird Things My Toddler Does: Part 14

Mila and I cook a lot.

Like seriously, it’s about five times a week. She’s super comfortable around heat sources, tools, and utensils. Plus, she loves trying new foods and dishes. I think when she has a hand in cooking, she’s more into trying whatever we cook.

Her favorite part is mixing and stirring our food. At first, it went normal. Lately, though, I’ve noticed she’s been doing something a little weird while I cook.

It doesn’t matter how many pots we use, she stirs with every single bamboo utensil. Weirder than that, she only uses the utensil for one stir and then discards it.

Not only is it a strange practice, it calls for a ton of clean up.

I guess toddlers like making a mess too. Maybe it’s about time she starts helping with all the dishes.

Let’s hope that she always loves cooking with me and wants to experiment with her food, but maybe gets a little less messy as time goes by. Even just practicing using one utensil instead of them all.

Toddlers are just weird.

Does anyone else’s toddler have to use every single one of an object? Mila does this with paint brushes too!

  1. I rarely cook with my kids. I’m too much of a control freak in the kitchen and can’t stand their messes. My daughter is a bit older now so she can help me and I’m less stressed but I still prefer to cook alone.

  2. My little boy just eats whatever he stirs. I think using all the utensils is just a (sorta funny) stage. Of course, not fun for the person who has to do the cleaning. But it´s super nice that you cook together. Such a nice activity.
