Why have I titled this blog “Happy Little Hippos”? Because that is what the little children sang as they cooked up their batch of vegetable soup for the homeschooling cooking class. They chopped, peeled, cut, and spread, as nine little chefs did their best, to be just like mum. Isn’t it amazing that little ones want to be just like their parents? It can be quite frightening to think that most of us have someone watching our every move, and that they want to follow us, it makes us try a little harder don’t you think?
