Jack's first go at baking


Polar Bears!

He's growing up fast my eldest boy! I've been doing a fair bit of baking lately, and this time he wanted to know what mummy was doing. The familiar call of "Jack too!" as I wandered into the kitchen swayed me. "Come on then," I sighed with a smile and pulled up the foot stool so he could reach the counter top.

He dusted my baking sheets with flour - loving the clouds he made when he clapped his hands. He had a go at using the rolling pin too. But the best bit was cutting out the shapes!

I let him choose which shapes we were going to have. I'd made enough dough for 3 dozen cookies so there was plenty to play with. He chose the boy, girl and teddy bear cutters for the first batch. Fior the rest he wanted stars (I have 3 styles of star and he likes sets of things). He did really well at cutting the shapes too. We don't have any play-doh or plastercine for him so he's not cut shapes before. He did great. Although he did eat rather a lot of raw dough....

Goes without saying I suppose! :oD

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
