(And yeah, it's more or less Isa and Terry's recipe, as credited on the original post.)

I think the "fourth" thing is an Americanism. Just have Scottish kids (or Canadian! ahem) and you should be okay.

He's pretty judgmental about people eating salt, too.

Are Canadian babies born with an intrinsic knowledge of the metric system? Because that would sway me...

Canadian babies are in this horrid no-mans land where they know inches and feet but not miles; kilometres but not centimetres; centigrade up to room temperature and then fahrenheit after it.

I do know grams and mls, though! I mean, Canadian babies know them.

his apron is fantastic.

when i learned fractions in school, i learned 1/4 as "one-fourth," not "one quarter." and i was a lot older than this kid seems to be, so i give him credit for not saying "one four" like i probably would have at his age.

In one of the Ramona books I learned that "one quarter" is dangerous, foul evil. She has to leave the house at a quarter till/after (can't remember) and figures that since a quarter in money is twenty-five cents, a quarter in time is twenty-five minutes. When I first read this, I'd already developed a certain animosity towards numbers and Ramona's tribulation only cemented it. Fractions are the devil's plaything.

I want him to have his own cooking show, I would watch it. Especially if he keeps saying stuff like "the night sky is coming down" when pouring chocolate chips.. what?!

This kid didn't change my mind, but I sure would love to hang with him one afternoon!
