This is the simplest birthday cake I have ever made for one of my children, probably my favorite too!
I realized when I got back into bed at 1:49am that my smartphone is making me a better mom. I’d been up for about an hour, just sitting by my sons bedroom door. I was calm despite the fact that I was tired, had been woken from a dead sleep. This would not have been the case when my girls were little, I would have been cranky, which never helps the situation, or asleep outside their door.
Oh Halloween. How I, personally, love you, or at least I love the chocolate, the rockets, oh the memories of trick or treating with my dad. As a mom, I definitely would love to see a little less of it.
Last year we went to the houses on our street, maybe 15 houses, and my girls had at least half a grocery bag full. There were full sized chocolate bars! Hardly any chips making the bag look fuller.
My mother-in-law tends to buy my kids books for Halloween… I LOVE this! We have a nice little collection of Halloween books that we wouldn’t otherwise have, because I’ve never thought to buy Halloween books to be honest.
And with October being National Book Month its the perfect time to buy some Halloween books and to get reading!
Book are a perfect way to get the Halloween spirit happening in your home.
Read a book, do a craft. Have some fun. Talk about Halloween safety…
We are going to be a homeschooling family this year. It is new, it is scary, its a lot for us to take on, but we’re gonna do it. It’s still so weird to think that we’re going to do this, let alone say it out loud, to anyone.
