with your kid when he or is she is either bored it very enthusiastic to try cooking?
I have come to know about it and I have tried at both times -:) He is someone who gets bored quite easily and wanting to do whatever I can kind of boy!!
Once when I was so tired; no cooking done: with the new helper just starting he started bugging me with his ‘I am super bored’ story!! Anything I would suggest didn’t work! And then I realized he loves making the lemon size balls with my chappathi flour ( motor-skills you see..) and rolling it evenly as a circle… Off I decided to recruit a little chef and he helped me or rather amused himself with playing with the chappathi flour ..
That’s also around the same time he was asking me about baking at home … Since baking is not my cup of coffee I worked it around and we bought a cupcake maker and I tried some microwave recipes with him .. Our first batch was ok but tried some store-bought icing and it was so-so..
He also enjoyed a baking session with his good friend D …

That’s how I would call it from his perspective !! He feels grown up — btw this post is almost a year back dated!
It was a big number to me as feel as I felt the big transition in him in terms of growing up.. And so somehow I also thought this may be the one that I may want to have the parents as well as I foresaw the future birthdays could be ‘just kids’.. So we decided to add some magic and colour to his birthday which I know he would love !! Yes, we had a magician at home, a lady facepainting the kids; balloon sculpting and I also organized a treasure hunt game for the kids.. So I know he absolutely loved it !! And it was very special as my mom was in Singapore as well.,
And we did a scrap-book message book as well, as I did for his first birthday ..
Framed – The return gifts were pics of him with the respective kids at some point !
I was so happy too that all his friends were able to make it and I know it’s one of the birthdays he cherishes 🙂
Pics speak more than words!! Don’t they ?
My mom was here and we spent his actual birthday at the Zoo 🙂 Spent half the day – though we were struck in rain – with his good friend R and my mom!! and Yes! he got to go free on his birthday:-)
And he did say he loved his birthday:-)
