Today, Mal said, "I'm going to make my own pizza. Big kids don't ask grown ups to make their pizza." He has done parts of the prep of a frozen pizza before, but today he felt ready to do the whole thing. I was nearby and coached him through setting the timer and cutting the pizza. He preheated the oven, opened the pizza, placed it in the oven, and removed it on his own.
He did a great job and was, more importantly, so proud of himself. He did burn a finger and his forearm, but he reacted quickly and it's barely red.
