Eating The Alphabet

I’m a stay-at-home-mom. Not a part-time working mom or even an occasional-work-from-home sort of mom, but an all-stay-at-home-mom-all-the-time kind of mom. My primary (okay, only)  job is to take care of my kids, and to be honest I haven’t had a whole lot of great mom-days lately. You know those “get tons of laundry done, cook a great dinner, get all the bills paid and still teach your oldest to read and your youngest to ride a bike without training wheels before sitting down in your clean house with a cup of tea to blog about it” sort of days? Yeah. Not so much.  The kids have been sick, the house has been messy, and I feel like I’m digging out from underneath a mound of housework and cranky children.

But yesterday we did experiment with these:

My husband threw them into an amazon order so he would have enough for free shipping. And I have to say I recommend them with zero reservations. Letter cookies; does it really get any more fun than that?

(Yes, that is Diet Coke with a straw in it.  I told you I haven’t been a the top of my game these days.  And yes, that is a pink pah-pah.  I swear, he’s trying to quit)

(Yep.  Those are jelly beans.  Jealous, aren’t you?)

Six names were baked, decorated, and eaten in under an hour (my husband, who has been having a LOT of super-dad kind of days lately, pre-made the dough for our baking enterprise).  All four kids had a fantastic time.  So, maybe I’m not at full power quite yet, but at least this is a step in the right direction.  It’s hard to feel overwhelmed as a mother when you’re eating cookies with your kids, am I right?

    It’s a deal, Jen! I’d MUCH rather potty train a kid than get one to give up the paci! I’m convinced that Nate will be taking one to college with him.
