This is one dish that M loves to help me with. Whenever i ask her if she wants to help me prepare noodles she has this cute smile on her face that is accompanied by the continuous nodes throughout. this is how it goes......
first thing first..... the ingredients
and some cooked chicken or veggies (if M allows)
First Mommy opens the packet and divides the whole noodle cake into two then its M's turn to break it into small pieces (mom helps with this too)
then comes the best part we drop the small noodle pieces into water !!! (cold) and M can do it for ages at a stretch ( i simply have to end it with a polite that's enough thank you thingie)
then M usually takes a bath and practice her pouring skills once again while mom cooks and add some seasoning &veggies/chicken
last night she relaxed on her favorite spot and waited for the noodles to cool down
and finally its time for our hard earned meal on her beloved cushion :)

any way for this one I took mount sheet ( from framer) and last years calender (Iqbal books) featuring cats that M is crazy about and retro backgrounds
then I glued the one that were simple and it had "flowers" M's Favorite and "Khat" in the posture that was simplest. As I wanted to make it super simple I made a super obvious mistake :) M was not interested after attempting it once or twice.
then i realized my mistake !!! I cut it diagonally into four pieces..... it had no keys to give clue and the triangles can fit in so many ways :( ... and she couldn't get her "khat" so for the second one I kept the cat faces intact and divided it into just two piece with two keys
this one is a hit !
she even tried putting it in reverse and side ways and she is as happy with it(her self applause is a clear indication that she is happy with what she is doing)I never really realized that completing a task (the way they perceive it) is that important for a toddler. (though we read about it all the time)

Yep !!! she was absorbed practicing with her pencil...... and no it was not about writing or drawing anything... the target was to hold the pencil like grown ups.
provides plenty of visual stimulation to M, we talk about the birds and fish and stars and frogs and God know what not.....its an amazing world and M loves to look at pictures and point out at her beloved friends...." shish"," khat" (cat), "boiii" (ball), "sttah"(star), "buurrds" birds.......
the funny thing is that no matter how much i appreciate her love of books i end up hiding them...to end the session ;)
happy reading :)
