This girl is cool as a cucumber, but given the right circumstances she can bust a move. She requires the perfect balance of alone time to try new things / praise for doing well / but not too much praise to embarrass her.
For a month now, Fern has been hanging on edge of the counter. As her confidence grew and she got the right amount of attention, she's turned it into a full blown routine.
If she only knew that girls put on frilly costumes and makeup to compete in such activities, then I don't think she would ever leave the kitchen. She's so proud of herself.
