The Perfect Soup

*Disclaimer* This post was entirely shot, written and edited all while shopping with my four year old son

Unlike most I actually enjoy grocery shopping with my four year old. He is always so eager to help and seems to be fascinated with helping me in the kitchen. Sure I am usually surprised at checkout with a few extra items and I do have to pick up fruit that he has thrown on the floor and there is the occasional display that he has knocked down, but ultimately it's much more fun than shopping by myself. Today we tried to stock our pantry and refrigerator with items for Carter's perfect soup. Here is what he came up with:

So it's not going to be the greatest tasting soup in the world, but there was some good effort involved. His chef skills clearly need a little bit of work, but hey he's only four years old and the important part is he didn't run anyone over and nobody got hurt. So for that Carter deserves a bonus.

Good work my son, maybe next time we'll actually get some food.

  1. As good a soup as any kid could wish for. Great job Chef Carter.

  2. looks good to me Carter. Good job!

  3. Hey if i was 4 years old that would have been the best soup ever!!!

  4. He did say he also needed Milk, juice and water so I guess that legitimizes the soup.

  5. I want fruit pie and lego soup. Now. Cathy x

  6. That was awesome! I think it was all a ploy to get the doughnut.

  7. LOL! What all did you cave in on? This close to Christmas, toys are EVERYWHERE and patience is hard to find. :)
