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!
