Bake me a cake as fast as you can

Elijah loves to help. It's probably his second favourite thing to do. Reading would be his favourite. On Saturday afternoon, I decided to use up the over-ripe bananas in some muffins. As soon as Elijah realised what was going on, his dragged a chair over to the kitchen and insisted on helping.

I gave him a fork and he helped to mash the bananas. He helped to tip the muffin mix (yes, I used a packet mix - you can't accuse me of being a domestic goddess) from the measuring cups into the mixing bowl. He helped to pour the water from the measuring jug into the bowl. He helped to stir the mix with a wooden spoon. He filled the muffin tray with muffin cases.

He watched me spoon the mixture into the cases. Then he helped clean the bowl.

What a good helper!

I like the final photo best. That child is adorable! IT is good I am so far away. He would have me for all the hugging and kissing, but he's so darned irresistible!

We are certain he'll break hearts one day! He's not short on hugs and kisses here either.
