My Silas is 4 and a half and is learning to show a little bit of independence. He loves to be able to go to the fridge with his cup and fill up his water from the filter. He's also learning how to get out the jug of juice and pour him a nice cup of apple juice. Yesterday he came to me with his cup of apple juice and said, "YUK! I do not like this kind of juice, Momma!" My poor kiddo....he had poured himself a cup of canola oil!
