Valentine’s day today, not that I expected a whole lot. But my God, it was the pits. Let’s not get into it, but suffice it to say no amount of wine or champagne made it better (not that I didn’t try…)
The best part by far though were the bits with the kids, like the soccer class and specifically, Ollie’s first foray into playing sous chef.
The Montessori method rests largely on the principle that we should empower children to be self sufficient. One of the ways to do this is to incorporate them into our daily routines, including cooking. So CS planned a dessert they could make together. It was awesome how into it he was. From the mixing to the measuring to the whipping. Molten chocolate cake for the win!
