This past month I discovered that I have a super power.
I have the Jedi mom mind powers.
I figured it out when my youngest son was talking about
his upcoming birthday and the party he wanted.

I casually mentioned that he liked playing Angry Birds
on my phone. What a fun party that might be.

And all of a sudden he wanted to have an Angry Birds party!

A few weeks later, I realized this type of a party was going to
be rather difficult as there really are no store decorations
to be found for this yet.
Meaning I would probably have to hand make any and all party decor.
Hhhhmmmm…this could be very time consuming.

Then one day while out shopping, I came across a skeleton candy mold.
(the lightbulb went off, so I went ahead and bought it:-)
Again I casually mention to my son what fun a pirate party could be.
You know with a treasure hunt and all!
And dirt graves with candy bones:-)

I’m sure you can imagine my surprise (hee hee)
when he decided that pirates would be more fun!

Next up…cupcakes for his class.
He said just chocolate.
So who do you think casually mentioned chocolate dirt cupcakes?
That’s right! This Jedi Mom!!!
All he could talk about were the worms:-)

So far I am three for three using my powers…and I have decided
that this mind trick thing is a pretty fun power to have.

Now if only I could get it work on the rest of my family…

“what’s that dear daughter?   You washed all the dishes?”
“seriously best oldest son? You mowed the yard just because?””eeeeiiikkkk!!!
Really, Honey, you are buying me the new camera I want?!?!?”

Oh yeah! I better start stretching my powers
because in my head those things sound really really good:-)

    Oh wow these sound yummy! LOVE the Jedi mom mind tricks. I too wish they worked on chores and other suck tasks. It always seems that I am running around all day and night while my family members just sit and watch!

    Brilliant! I love them! What a fun idea. I can’t wait to try them. I might just have to try some “Jedi Mom Mind Tricks” too!

    Hello, I just wanted to say I am so excited to try to make these tomorrow, but I am putting a little twist “in it”. Instead of using chocolate pudding mixture for the inside, I’m going to use the original pudding mixture. The one with the cream cheese, french vanilla pudding, powdered sugar and cool whip. Wish me luck!! I hope it turns out delish!!
