Buckwheat Green Eggs


There is a serious test for one’s creativity and it is called “sick kid at home”. Ever tried to entertain your kid while working regular hours? Thankfully, she did not have a big appetite, because my work would not survive till the photo shoot. These were intensive three days, but it did include some good eating as well. How did I guess that Mia was sick? She did not want to bake a cake. At my home with this particular kid, it raises many questions. I did mention it once or twice, but she makes me bake or cook with her almost each day, sometimes more than once. Each day she tries to push me to prepare a whole birthday party for her with her. So when she said no, I knew there was something wrong.
