Cherishing childhood memories is a really good feeling. But I always wonder whether our kids will have something to talk or write about. Summer holidays for us was super fun filled with too many memories. For the kids these days is just summer camp, extra classes and what not. I was dropping off Shweets at her ballet class at around 5.30 pm and I could hear one parent speaking about taking her kids next for soccer practice. How are the kids managing these things. One other thing is getting private school admission in the US. I made up mind not to put too much pressure we just did some basics and Shweets got through easliy. When I was googling about the questions, I was shocked to see in some places, they have traning classes for preschool kids to prepare for the entrance and there the kids undergo too much pressure.Why all this can't things be simple !!!
It is not about how many classes a kid attends. It is about how well they do it and most importantly do they like it.Parents should totally understand this. I wanted to write about this badly because it is one of the most important topic when Mom's meet in parties. We should make sure the kids enjoy everything they do and we should pass on the legacy. One important thing in that front is to introduce our family favorite recipes to our kids. One sunday morning we called up MIL to note down some wonderful snack recipes MK loved as a child. This recipe is from the list it did not have a name or my MIL did not know it So I called Indian Pancakes and gave it to Shweets. It is easy snack to impress the kids !!!
