That is precious of him. How about-for real-giving him "jobs" you WILL need done..which, truthfully..will be ALL those things, you listed..except maybe the lots of butter and jelly, at least at first!
You are truly blessed to have him-but I know you already KNOW that !!

My son was 12 when I had my WLS. He had ADHD, and LOTS of energy, but he was the absolutely best help/caregiver I had. He tried to wait on me hand and foot. He even bought a baby monitor, at a garage sale (for $2, with his own money), so he could "hear you call me"..
He's the one who helped to the bathroom/waited outside the BR/waited outside the shower/went for walks with me/etc/etc..I'd have had a MUCH rougher time without him..
I did have to give him some very SPECIFIC chores, due to his short attention span (much like your egg incident)..and we have a few fun goof ups..but his heart was in the right place, and it made for some great bonding time for us..
He's 22 now, and has become a wonderful, very nurturing young man
Best wishes to you as you begin this journey!
