Do Try This at Home

I made these Frozen Banana Ice Cream Sandwiches yesterday; kind of as a victory treat after we got H. in bed for the night. More like in bed for the first time--before his billion escape attempts. (I need a drink. I forgot to get a hug. You're my BEST friend. Here, Mommy. You can hold Teddy.) The list goes on. And on.

Maybe it was the thrill of trying to sneak our desserts past the ever-present watchful eyes of the child who should be sleeping. Maybe it's just because it's one of those desserts that's such a guilty pleasure you shouldn't even consider counting calories. But they were great. You want proof? Because even after the little wanderer finally fell asleep, we both went back for seconds. Even without the thrill of sneaking a bite of the the forbidden dessert when he wasn't looking, it still tasted just as good. Seriously. Make some tonight. And if you're a nicer mom than I am, maybe you'll even consider sharing.

These are totally up my alley... I'm going to have to give these a whirl (anything with cookies AND ice cream).

And, I don't know if it's because it's summer or just a stage, but we're dealing with a bedtime mess too.

One more hug... one more drink... just wanted to say hi... the list goes on and on.
