Preparing their own breakfast……

Child

Kitkit ever asked in the past: “Mummy can I use the stove without you around?”
Me: “No. Not when you are at this age. If I’m still asleep, wake me up. I want to be around when you are cooking.”

And that was exactly what he did this morning……
Kitkit [tippity-tapping my arm]: “Mummy, I’m a little hungry. I want to cook scrambled eggs.”
Me: “Ok.”
I reached for my glasses and we went into the kitchen.

Knowing that Gorgor is having scrambled eggs for breakfast, Binbin joined in.

Watching my 8 year old and 9 year old preparing their own breakfast….how can I not capture this moment?!
*Snapped*

Muffins…Cookies…Friendship

Child

Backdated post : 4th September 2013

In my personal blog, I mentioned that my younger son ‘placed order’ for my Nutella mini-muffins to bring along during his school excursion [Blog Post here]

He brought 7 Nutella mini-muffins and 2 Nutella Super-mini-muffins. His close friend, since nursery and preschool years, got to try my muffins and in return, several days later he gave two packets of self-baked chocolate ginger cookies. Yes, Binbin’s 5-years-long friend baked the chocolate ginger cookies on his own. *Thumbs Up*

Me: “Did J. know that the muffins were not done by you?”
BinBin: “Yes. I told him. He said since I gave him muffin to eat, he gives me cookies to eat lor.”
Me: “So did he like the muffins?”
Binbin: “Yes! He said “Nice!” “
Me: “Yeah! So did he ask for more?”
Binbin: “I gave him one only, didn’t give more.”
Me: “Huh??? Why?”
Binbin: “Because later I not enough to eat!”
Me: *laugh*

Its either Binbin’s taste buds have changed ‘likings‘ or the value of this gift meant too much to him. In the past, I had given him a piece of chocolate ginger cookie and he could not bear to take the second bite. Yet, this time, he finished ONE packet at ONE go!!! *jaws dropped* By the way, there were 4 cookies in one packet and the cookies were actually pretty big! And yes, my boy had problem finishing his dinner, which was about 3 hours after all the cookies ended in his tummy….
*eyes rolled*
