Three of my boys had acute gastroenteritis two weeks ago. Until now, they are still taking their medication. Aside from being reminded to prefer home cooked meals over dine in or take out from restaurants and fast food stores, this mother was advised to be careful about food preparation. The more, too, that I got to be prompted by my very reason I resigned from work three years ago – spend more time with my children.
If only I have magic, I would want to know the innermost thoughts of my boys. I have two teenagers already. Though I would say we are pretty close, there are still times I can’t simply understand them. Perhaps same with those moments they can’t grasp my abrupt change of mood. Thus, as much as possible, we bond over good food and conversation during dinner and weekend meals. And there is another thing we all love doing together – baking.
Yes. My three boys love baking as much as their mom enjoys whipping creams and even greasing that baking pan. And I would say it is one of those bonding moments we can catch up and spend that much-needed quality time together. Beyond that, though, allow this mother to share with you the magic baking together brings to her family.
