The moments where he turned my face towards him and smile
Where he helped me packed his clothes away (translate to throwing his folded clothes into his basket = pile of mess)*
Stirring the bowl as we create breakfast or snack bars together
He recounted his steam engine train experience
Our library trips
And as a family
Heading outdoors and having a sit down lunch, facing the pond on a sunny spring day. Followed by kicking/throwing the ball and catching bubbles.
Family meals. Talking about our day and how our food tastes like.
Exploring new cafes
Walks and more walks around our neighbourhood
Dancing and singing to “bob the builder”, “Wheels on the bus” “ABC”
Doing family chores together (i.e. folding clothes, putting clothes away, hanging them)
Hubby and I
Chilling over a cup of tea and fruits when Asher is in bed
Enjoying a good cup of coffee
The quiet conversation we can have when Asher falls asleep at the back of the car or when he is taking a nap
A drive to any where by myself
Creating something/any thing
I am a planner. I dislike wasting time and like to have my days and weeks schedule. This include weekends and public holidays. Over the past 2 years, I have also learn that you can be a planner and appreciate the moments. After all, life is not about the next moment always. It is about the journey.
Take these scones. I’m researching on how to make “clean” scones at home. My grandmother used to love hers with lashes of jam and cream (more cream than anything else). Since we do not have any flour at home, it is a tad hard to make fluffy scones. I found these American versions of scones which is more like a cross between a bread and a cake. Not quite a muffin either. Asher love mixing the batter up and holding his “cake” to it. So it is not quite a proper English version but a very happy experimental one that contains great protein to boot. No complains with what he is eating here!
