good to the last drop...



i love our days that we spend at home pretending like there aren't chores or errands to do. we just hunker down, act like superheroes, and refuse to get fully dressed. these days are the ones where my memories are made. i am a big believer that sometimes, you have to put reality behind you and let your inner child take over for the day. so we avoid eating full meals, just live off of snacks and peanut butter toast and have brownies for a bedtime snack. call me crazy, but i completely think it is ok to shove-off mommy duties once in a while! it's not like we ever claimed to be the model american family anyways! and let's be honest it feels good to do absolutely nothing once in a while (which seems to be more often these days, but shhhh don't tell). When making treats in our home that is about the only time you will find my boys helping in the kitchen - solely to lick the bowl that is. i guess they are right, kids are smarter than they look... go figure! we all agree that brownie mix is always good right down to the last drop, and if you are brinley it is even better when you lick it off your arm. we always share some good laughs when we are licking our spoons and elbows clean, and i am truly thankful for these easy family days where we all just hang out and enjoy each other. Even if it means trying to play catch up on my cleaning tomorrow...
