Busy little baker boys



This afternoon we had a really fun pretend play session! The boys all made ‘cupcakes’. We made 3 colours of play dough at home – brown -flavoured with some cocoa, pink and white with vanilla essence.(https://myfourboysandme.wordpress.com/2013/02/25/home-made-play-dough-so-they-can-have-the-cake-and-eat-it-too/)  I also cut up some coloured plastic thread that i had lying around into small bits to use as sprinkles. In addition, we pulled out some cupcake liners that we had and the boys were all set to make their own cupcakes. They had such a blast. We even pulled out some pink plastic spoons that i had taken at an earlier visit to baskin robbins. Amu joined in to and kept trying to dig into the ‘cupcakes’ with his spoon! 

The twins had their own little birthday party and sang for each other too… Nish invited Sid to his party and Sid went for the party with a cupcake for his brother! They shared the cupcake, decided it was delicious and thanked each other profusely! 



We had a few moments of pandemonium when Amu snatched Sid’s cupcake and made off with it, flattening it considerably in the process. 


This was great for general pretend play, motor skills – kneading the dough, shaping it, decorating it with ‘icing’ as well as ‘sprinkles’, candles etc. It pushed them to think creatively, have a conversation and share common resources. And it sure was delightful to watch them!

Mom - a word that defines me... I smell of oats, johnson's and home baked cookies I am pink, purple, green and orange and so is the floor my kids color on. Flour on my clothes and a brush in my pocket, my glasses bent out of shape and smudged with tiny fingerprints. I can't remember the date but i know almost 40 pictures books by heart. I wake up humming 'wheels on the bus'and i talk with my fingers and eyes and mouth. My bag carries band aids, napkins, wipes, crayons, papers, candy and sometimes my wallet. I know all the parks and very few of the restaurants in my neighborhood. Most of my shopping is diapers, books and paints My phd certificate lies in a roll, the frame now contains an abstract work of art by two year olds and i am prouder of that piece of paper. mom - a word that defines me!
