she doesn't like sitting around
quote:Originally posted by ramblings:My mom loved to cook, and she hates to sit and watch me work around the house and cook for her. I started putting her back in the kitchen (I stay and wipe cabnets, do dishes etc., so she doesn't know I am keeping an eye on her.) I started with having her make coleslaw. Then the next day I had her make fruit salad. Then chicken salad. she likes to wash the dishes and wipe down the counter (usually these may need a little redoing...when she is in another room. ) Today, it's going to be cookies. I want to see if she will follow the recipe. Then I will 'just happen' to be there when they go in/come out of the oven. She loves to set the table. Mostly, she wants to feel needed and now she is starting to.
