Prunes and Sesame Cookies


As soon as the March  approaches  the fever of exams starts and children were seen less in parks, all busy preparing  for their final exams.  How can my home be  free of this fever.   As a kid I was an escapist of studies  and my  son is like me and his span of attention is also very low but thankfully  he studies very carefully and thoroughly unlike me.

Like me, he too makes lots of excuses to escape from studies but aware of all such formulas I did not let him make fool of myself.   During his exams time he loves munching in between, reasons as I told you.  I keep them ready in his room so that he didn’t get the chance to escape somewhere.  I will share more of his favorite cookies in the coming month.
