Banana Bread Fun
As we were putting everything into the bowl she insisted on doing as much as she could by herself. She looked up at me with her big blue eyes and said, "I have to learn everything that grown ups do, cause I have to do everything you do when I'm a grown up." It's not a new statement from her. She usually watches things pretty intently and then tells me she has to learn how to do whatever it is so she can do it when she's a mom. It's pretty neat to have such a goal oriented, driven 4 year old. At this point she knows exactly what she wants...it's to be a mom...just like me. Any time she says this it reminds me that I have a little shadow watching every move I make. It also makes me feel pretty special. I know I always wanted to be a mommy. I'd pretend with my dolls and now I see her doing the same. It's pretty amazing.
So for homeschooling today, she learned to make banana bread and how to crack an egg without making a giant mess. I'd say that's a pretty productive day for my preschooler, don't you think.
