To the point though, Charlotte found her inspiration yesterday. During court, a girl not that much older than she is received a Tyger's Cub for all the kitchen work she does at events. Charlotte was paying rapt attention - and then turned to me and said "Mommy, I want to learn to cook in the kitchen at events." :-) That's my girl - goal oriented.
Since she's pretty much only just now tall enough for that to be practical, we'll give it a try. I told her that she could practice by helping with the dishes at home.
