If there is ever a need to distract Colter, all I have to do is ask him if he wants to help Mommy cook something, and he dashes off to the kitchen. He drags his step stool to the mixer and stands ready to dump the ingredients in the bowl or, sometimes, on the floor! I think someday he will have his own show on Food Network. Hopefully, he'll grow out of the habit of licking the bowl quite so enthusiastically. Or at least do that part off camera.
