The relationship a child has with its mother is the filter through which that child will view his or her place in the world. As busy working mothers, it is easy to get caught up in the busyness of trying to navigate through the corporate world. Many times, mommy and me time isn’t a priority in our day planners. When I realized that I wasn’t spending enough quality time with my children, I began to create ways to ensure that mommy and me time was a priority- daily. My favorite mommy and me activities involve cooking. The cooking lessons reinforce reading and math skills and it also a time to talk. My daughter and I have recently perfected the recipe for mini mommy and me apple pies, I share it with you below:
