A couple weeks ago we went to an open house
for one of the girls in the church youth group.
When we got ready to leave, our daughter was still inside playing,
so we sent the youngest goober in to find her.
Of course he ran across the road without looking,
found her, and then proceeded to run across the road
without looking AGAIN.
He got in the van and my hubby immediately said,
“Bam! You’re dead!”
This prompted a much needed discussion about
looking before crossing because cars miss tiny
little bodies when they dart across roads.
Things that obviously as parents we had taught them,
but they have to be told again and again.
Fast forward a couple weeks…
we were at my inlaws for my niece’s bday party.
My husband was carrying out some stuff to our van
as we got ready to leave.
He opened the back of the van and was greeted with,
“Bam! Daddy, you are dead!”
It startled him and he had to have my son repeat it again.
To which my son laughed and said,
“Daddy, you didn’t look before crossing the road.”
Turns out the goober was watching as my husband
crossed the road
Now kids obviously don’t understand peripheral vision…
he just saw the lack of looking going on.
This quote is so true…
Don’t worry that children never listen to you;
worry that they are always watching you. Robert Fulghum
Totally had us cracking up!!!
We laughed for quite a while for that one.
The things that they remember is quite funny!
But, hey if it makes him remember to look before crossing,
I am all for it.
Now you might want to stop before looking at the rest of this post.
This is definitely not diet friendly….
but I can honestly tell you
it is sooooo worth it!
My daughter and I came up with these Oreo Brownie Smore Cups
for her end of the year school party.
We wanted some sort of cupcake form that wouldn’t
be super messy to transport to and from school.
Enter in the brownie cups…
now of course we could have just made brownies
and been done with it.
you all know my little fettish for jazzing things up:-)
My daughter had the best idea…
let’s add Oreos!
These are the perfect picnic/bonfire treat.
I hope you enjoy them.
