While I always dreamed of motherhood, the more I delayed, the more it opened a world of apprehensions and fears I never previously had. The moment you start planning, you’re bombarded with advice, often dire pronouncements that you’re not really ready to hear.
What is the objective here, to teach the child motor skills, logical reasoning or something more? What I saw my child learn instead is that mummy had to go to several shops to buy the required materials, and had to browse the internet for ideas (did I teach my child to cheat just then? I don't know anymore!!). Invariably, I ended up doing most of the project for her because the only few tasks that she could do at that age was applying glue to stuff.
