my mom always made after school snacks. did yours?
the problem here is that mason likes BIG snacks. we are talking full on dinners. “can we please stop off at taco time?”. “i’m so hungry i can’t make it home!”. omG… we only live 10 minutes from home. and he wants his snack and dinner to NOT be the same thing. on the same day.
this is exhausting. what ever happened to the cute little fruit roll up? or baby chocolate milk? even a bowl of cereal was fine last year. but this year he has grown over 11 inches. even the physical changes these past few months make me look twice at times. where did my baby boy go? i guess he deserved to eat like a grown up now.
i promise i’d make you better snacks if you’d just get that hair cut! been growing it for months. seems like years. growing. growing. growing. so is he. into a man. enough about the hair. tbh… we all like it. it’s him.
ok, i get it. independence. high school girls. coolness. you be you!
i love that kid of ours.
so, today i was tired of making meals for everyone (not like i do it a lot…haha).
and we had these great bananas on the counter. the kind that are a little green still. my fav kind. and the peanut butter and baggies were still on the counter from making lunch this morning (typical). and the m&m’s and mini chocolate chips were left over from cookies i made this past weekend (which mason and friends ate ALL of them in 2 days).
i grabbed a baggie. put some peanut butter in it. snipped the tip off the end. swirled the peanut butter onto the banana slices. topped with school colors. so awesome. even i was proud of my accomplishment. and guess what? he liked it. not one complaint that it wasn’t a “meal”.
i will never tire of making him after school snacks because i know how fast time goes. brooke lives in CA now and i can no longer do that for her. here’s to 3 1/2 more years of snack making.
