Remember these days - or maybe you are still in this era of your life! God Bless You! I had a very precocious little boy who loved to explore and get into things when he was a toddler. Oh ... to have those days back!! Cherish every one of them. I don't think my Jeff was ever as bad as "Billy" in the recipe below but I thought it was funny! Enjoy!
