Muffin break with mummy

My little girl loves muffins. Actually, anything sweet and that resembles cake is a sure-win in her books.

We took a little break that day when I was working from home. I was making good headway into my to-do list, and I thought of rewarding her for being cooperative. Moreover, it has been a while since our last mummy-daughter outing.

So we braved the rain and headed to the nearest Starbucks. I got her a chocolate muffin and a peppermint mocha for myself. While she was happily munching away, I was busy taking photos (while sneaking bites in between).

It was a nice treat for the both of us really…Motherhood really makes me enjoy the simplest pleasures that we manage to squeeze into our schedules somehow. Moments of indulgence. Moments of delight. Amidst the moments of madness.

For some reason, I really enjoy these muffin/munching/coffee sessions with Vera very much. It’s almost like a special thing that we share…just me and my little girl. After all, I think that she got her sweet tooth and eating gene from me. 😉

Is there a special activity that only you and your child share?

    For Dumpling and I, it’s gotta be our Sat movie nights. We don’t encourage tv time on weekdays, so this is a special time of the week where I disconnect to connect (it’s very hard!!) and she gets her fill of a movie. (We sometimes break it over 2 sessions.) But yes, it’s a special moment for us both 🙂

      That’s a lovely idea to disconnect and relax with Dumpling! Vera hasn’t quite gotten into many movies yet, so yes we will probably work it into her schedule as we go along. Thanks for sharing Alicia. 🙂

    Our special moments are crafting together – she loves asking if we can do a new craft together! Also, I feel a special bond with my little girl when I’m braiding her hair. My favourite mummy job.
