It has come to my attention that I may be incorrectly calling myself a 'mother'

... As I peer over the shoulder of a friend, who has been assisting both of our children at the stove in the making of puffed rice marshmallow treats.

ME: "I'm just peeking ... I've never made these."

HER: "And you call yourself a mother. ..."

treat

See? Poor little deprived Silas. Never had a crispy treat before some other mom made it for him.

So that's the measure of motherhood?

I don't think I've ever made rice crispy treats with my kids.

I thought your "strawberry toddler cobbler" looked far more appetizing than marshmallow mortared cereal.

And probably more nutritious as well.

OMG. You're so fired.
So so so fired.

I should call children's services right now huh?

Oh but then they'd wonder when the last time I made my children rice krispy treats was and I'd have to say the last time I bought 'em in a box at the grocery store cause really they are kind of a pain to make what with marshmallow stickage everywhere.

So yeah...next time try putting choco chips or butterscotch chips on 'em and smear 'em around....talk about YUM!

I should bake today....

Don't feel bad, I got a call from the daycare to tell me that "all the other kids brought their snow boots to go outside and Francesco didn't have any". I am still learning this Mom gig.
