June 13 – Teaching/Learning independence takes time.

Today at lunch time Tilly asked to make her own sandwich. She has done it a couple of times now and sometimes I say yes and sometimes I can’t be bothered waiting and I say no. Today was a yes day. I know she needs the practise in order to learn and develop her own independence and skills as a sandwich maker in her own right πŸ™‚ So I thought I would capture the even to share with you all.

Step one: Choose your bread (of course she chose crust…her favourite piece)-

Step 2: Apply margarine-

Step 3: Apply your choice of topping (Matilda’s choice today… Golden syrup… interesting choice)-

Sometimes a little extra effort is needed πŸ˜‰

Step 4: Apply a pinch of sprinkles (needed on top of all sandwiches Matilda makes herself)-

Ok, so a pinch wasn’t enough-

But really… the whole jar? (being a good Mummy and not interrupting the process πŸ™‚ ).

Phew… at least some go back. Hahahahah-

See Mum… I did it myself-

Step 5: Cut into desired sized pieces and eat πŸ™‚

Good work Princess! Now can you please make mine and Zoe’s too? No Mummy I eat mine now. Oh well it was worth a try πŸ™‚ Guess I still have to feed myself and the baby πŸ™‚
