Saturday morning our plans kept changing – go to town, stay at home, go to town! I ended up going to town to take Nomi into the library to meet up with an author and illustrator. I was under the impression the session was for lower primary/preschool kids so we didn’t intend to stay. Once we met these people though we changed our mind. I am so glad we did. More on that later.
But meanwhile back at home Jess had agreed to keeping Daniel at home with her. Often I don’t ask the kids, I just expect them to look after each other if I have to go out but Saturday morning I knew Jess was looking forward to some down time and having Daniel at home as well would change the dynamics of that. She was more than happy to do that.
When we came home – 3 hour later it was very quiet and Jess and Daniel didn’t greet us at the door as I would have expected. I walked into the kitchen and there they were – sitting on the floor licking a mixing bowl!
Apparently Daniel was getting floating around so Jess offered to do some cooking with him. I was so proud of her!
So dessert was choc chip – actually Extra Choc Chip muffins!
Peter commended them both – Jess for her generosity and Daniel for finding (thanks to Jess) something productive to do with his time – a lesson he surely needs practice in.
