Yea I am done with supervising my son. For today, he sat for his last paper for Final year examination I seriously hope that he did put in his best effort and be serious during the examination.
Since yesterday, he was already looking forward to today. I don't know whether he is a cool dude or couldn't be bother attitude but he is definitely not stress over the examination despite not doing well for his mid year. Going through his assessment books, I found out that many of them are not really fully attempted despite me urging him on to try it.
Was it my error that since young, we focus more on play rather than studying? After all, it was only after his Primary 6 Prelim, that I hired a tutor for him? Thus there is no responsible to do assessment? Have we done wrong to let them have a good childhood?
Just a moment ago, I was on the phone with my client, deciding on the theme for a little 10 years old boy's birthday cake. When his mom asked him what design he wanted for his birthday cake. His response was "Anti homework".
I can't help but wonder ....
Anyway, cookie jar is empty and I am sure my boy will be walking round the house and asking what can he eat.
Thus I decided on healthier choice by using oatmeal and raisin. I just couldn't resist throwing in a handful of chocolate chip as well as I really have way too much chips.
So here is our Oatmeal, Raisin and Chocolate chip cookie. If you like chewy cookie like me, this will be the one.
Nevertheless, I am pretty pleased how these turned out. At least all in uniform shape but I will definitely need to buy a smaller ice cream scoop so that my cookies can be more dainty looking.
