Rae Makes Breakfast

Rae had gotten past the first stage to be enrolled officially as a Brownie. She had completed some important basics and in the next weeks, there will be an enrollment ceremony for her. She had been pestering me to let her quit this co curricular activity (soon after joining) in school last year and I persuaded her many times to continue. She persevered for a year and this year she can finally put on the brownie uniform and the scarf. She is feeling the excitement, finally!

However, before the enrollment, she needed to complete some tasks. Among them are cooking, serving and wash up after a meal. She also need to iron her Brownie scarf, wash the uniform, sew buttons and other tasks at home. Last Sunday, I got her to take care of the family's breakfast. I taught her to make scrambled eggs for herself and Lea, set the table, serve and she enjoyed herself so much. Lea is the little kitchen helper.



Now Sunday breakfast will be her responsibility until she complains! LOL

It's great to get them start helping out in house chores at such a tender age instead of leaving everything to the maid. They will be too spoiled by the time you realise if the maid takes care of everything. They will be lack of independence eventually which is bad for their survival in the real world. You're a great mom!!

That's really good training. I remembered being a brownie when I was young and proceeded to be girl guide and ranger. Never regretted it.
