not a super exciting post. just wanting to share a special moment that happened today.
right before Crew went to school today, he was laying in my bed talking to me and it dawned on me that we've never "spooned". Sure, we've cuddled. But never specifically spooned. So I layed on my side, pulled him over to me.
After a moment, he grabbed my hand, slipped his precious little fingers in between mine and sighed the best sigh of contentment I have ever heard. He didn't talk. He just laid with me. I (of course) started to tear up, which isn't a stretch for me. Then caught a pic of us.
also. speaking of "spooning" or rather something to stick a spoon in.
I was supposed to make Dirt 'n Worms for Crew's class today in honor of Earth Day and I found a recipe on Pinterest that would have no doubt been super cute, but it also would have taken hours to get through. So in an attempt to simplify my life and try not to overdue it, I grabbed four packs of snack-pac pudding, a bag of gummy worms and some oreos. After a few rounds in the food processor, I sprinkled the Oreos on top of each snack-pac each containing four worms...shoved in a spoon and called it a day. The kids love them and it literally only took 10 min.
as Crew would say, it was easy peasy lemon squeezy.
*fyi. if you have a nut allergy or your kids do, you can use the Trolli Sour Brite Crawlers. Not only are they nut free, but they're also manufactured in a facility that is nut free.
*sorry if this is a double dose of these pics for you after seeing them on my Instagram. but if you're not following me, you can do so here or by searching hmfancher.
