Bam! There Ya Have It!

Jake has decided to be a chef. Specifically, he wants to be Emeril Lagasse. I'm sure it has nothing to do with me being nuts over Food Network, or Jake having watched Emeril since he was a year old. But he's got the routine down, man. He hums when we stir or add seasoning. He sends us off with promising "Another notch!!!" And of course, "Bam! there ya have it." It's funny to watch, but kind of cool to think that something I watched for so long has had that sort of impact. There's very little that Jake will latch onto for long- but he wants to cook, to entertain and to be just like Emeril. Aw yeah babe's and all!

So watch out world! Here comes the next Food Network chef!

That would be awesome. Jake will probably give you free food in his giant, money-making chain of restaurants.

Very cute.

My son thought he wanted to be a chef. It came and went as quickly as the urgency to pee.

Now, his career path is up in limbo. BTW-he's 17.

So far, at 7 and 6, we've gone through a lot of career choices, lol. Chef, vet, fashion designer, teacher, movie star, Broadway star, doctor, garbage man, mail person... and Jake, for a long time, wanted to be the guy who puts stop signs in. As of now, he's sticking with chef. Lyss, on the other hand, is convinced she'll be a vet, fashion designer and help starving kids. And she wants to be the President. I hope she can get scholarships for all that.....
