Time in the kitchen while mama cooks

This was one of those cold and rainy days, after a few rainy days, when the kids had had enough to be inside the house and got a bit wild. However, we had to prepare dinner; so i gave Andrew a huge bowl of veggies to be cut for future use and he cut them all very happily (while talking about all sorts of stuff); I gave Massimo 6 different types of beans to sort out in a muffin pan and he did that very diligently and quite perfectly for almost an hour (he even recognized and divided the small white beans from the large white beans without anybody pointing out the difference, I was amazed). This is the story of a crazy day turned into quiet fun.
