Teacher's Day Part 1 (Baking Muffins)

This Friday the playschool will be celebrating Teacher's Day and thereafter to break for a week of holidays. Since Kimi do not attend PG on Fridays, we decided to bake some muffins for a small gift for his PG teachers and give it to them tomorrow.

So, this afternoon, we did baking as part of learning - stirring, picking up raisins, banana slices and adding them to the muffins. Luckily hb was around to help me hold on to Kimi etc as not that easy cos Kimi needs to stand on the dining chairs. I was so afraid he would slip and fall.

My cam can't seem to be able to take fast shots so pls pardon the badly taken pix. I would definitely do this again with Kimi. Maybe, we can do drop cookies or cut-out cookies next time! He did help me scoop some of the batter into the cups. No mean feat for a 19month old! I'm so proud of his enthusiam! Good job Kimi!

Oh ya, by the way, I had a very pleasant and encouraging surprise today. When Kimi saw me laying out the flashcards, he quickly went over to push his high chair to the dining table! I usually put Kimi in his high chair during our sessions.

I really don't know how to describe how I feel when I saw him trying to push the chair over. Really mixed emotions - elated cos he was happy to do the session, touched cos he showed he was getting more helpful and understanding - trying to chip in to help me when he saw I had my hands full, bittersweet cos he is growing up and a fast one at that! Sometimes, little actions like these can bring a tear to my eyes. Hmm, getting quite emotional these days!

After adding the flour, let's add the sugar...
Stir in the milk ...
Mix lightly and quickly so that all the ingredients are combined

Ellena,I was inspired by you actually! I remembered how Reyon is so good in handling the electric beaters! Amazing as Reyon was so young then.. I don dare cos Kimi likes to squeeze and play with everything. Maybe a few more months ba..?
