While we were making mini muffins this morning, Madalyn had several wonders to start off our day:
- “I wonder how the mix from this pack turns into muffins” (we were using the Martha White muffin mix where you only have to add milk)
- “I wonder what would happen if you filled this cup all the way up and added that much milk” (the instructions say to add 1/2 a cup of milk and the measuring cup went to 2 cups)
- “I wonder why these taste so good”
So the teacher in me saw great opportunities for exploration of things like cause and effect, measurement, senses, ….
But the parent in me just saw a good opportunity to enjoy time spent together …
So I think my wonder today will be to enjoy spending time together …
