This sunday it was just me and my kids at home. Hubby was out of station. Kids turned over a new leaf and were studying for thier upcoming quarterly exam without watching T.V. Evening came and they were quite hungry and wanted to go out for a quick bite of some samosas or ice cream. I was not in the mood to step out of my haven as I was so tired with cleaning house for the forth coming pooja.
My younger son Arjun wanted to have chocolate cake that he loves so much which I used to make and the elder one Arun also went for it. I too went along as I had all the ingrdients in hand. So they turned into chefs for the evening. Except for breaking the eggs all the other process were done by them. We had a great quality time spent together and enjoyed it very much with a cup of tea while watching the cartoon movie 'Madagascar'.
