Do you ever do things that make you feel like "super mom" if only for a few minutes?
Once upon a time I had saved this idea that I found here.
The other night after dinner this was our special dessert.
I made it right there as we all sat around the table while he watched. He was pretty into it. It was fun.
Often when I try to implement something cute I saw online, it turns out that it is something moms think is cute or maybe older kids or something but he isn't really all that into it.
This time was fun. Plus it was healthy fruit for dessert!
My only prep was to add "green apple" and "green grapes" to the shopping list when Adrian was going to the store and then to e-mail myself the link so I could look at the step by step instructions on my phone while I made it and just making a note to do it after dinner that night.
I think that sometimes I feel like I need to prep these things ahead of time and then they just never happen so this was a good lesson learned.
Plus I got to cut the apple on the horizontal and show him the star that God put into the middle of apples! I remember how I used to beg my mom to cut our apples that way so I could see the star.
So, if you have any green apples and grapes sitting around, maybe have a turtle for dessert tonight.
