Proud Mommy Moment

This morning Gabe found my stash of Hershey chocolate bars in the cupboard. I had bought these to have on hand if we were going to make smores this summer - but never did. He really wanted to go make a fire in the back-yard and make smores. I wasn't feeling particularly camp-fire-ish so I suggested we make them in the microwave....for breakfast....

It might not have fulfilled any nutritional requirements, but know what - we had a blast! Gabe helped put them together, Hunter made a mess and I laughed and laughed when the melted chocolate squished out of mine and ended up all over my hands - ALL OVER! (too bad I didn't get a picture of that one.

Our tasty breakfast ended with trips to the bath-tub and lots of smiles. Definitely worth the extra calories!

Twice a year, Alicia and I will have smores for breakfast. We are lucky to have a gas cook top, so we roast the marshmallows there instead of in the microwave, but we have done them in the microwave before too.

It's just plain fun. I'm so glad you let the boys do it. (I know, the sugar crash later is HARD - that's why we only do it twice a year - but so worth it). LOVE, Charlotte
