I am surprised how much I have enjoyed raising two boys. From the moment I found out I was having my first boy, I thought, no way, I don’t even know what to do with a boy…I’m a girl. Somehow its all worked out.
The boys are hilarious and always up for fun. Children are truly an extension of our lives…and selfishly I don’t want them to grow up.
My littlest guy came to me yesterday and said, “Mom, can you believe it’s Mother’s Day tomorrow. I’m going to give you a shoulder and throat massage first thing in the morning!” Well, I hope he means neck otherwise I’m afraid. If I never post here again he meant throat and it didn’t go well.
Yesterday the boys also said they wanted to make me a treat for Mother’s Day but since they are aren’t allowed to use knives, the stove or the oven, what could they make without a lot of help? I thought about it and suggested chocolate covered strawberries. It was easy and figured they would be able to handle it without me becoming their third arm.
I melted some chocolate and they went at it. Look what I got…
Can you believe it? I was totally impressed. After the gobs and gobs of chocolate surrounding these strawberries dried on the wax paper, we picked these off and they actually look pretty darn good.
I love the chocolate chip ones.
They can make me treats anytime. What do you want to see them make next? Ha, it could be a new series. I will be snacking on these all day. They watched me intently as I ate three of them. They were very proud of themselves and so was I. I wish it could be Mother’s Day every day.
I also saw this interview Cheryl did over at Twinfatuation with her twins. I don’t have twins but I do have two kids, so good enough. I thought it would be fun to ask them their thoughts so I could always remember their answers at this age.
