Here is my list of 6 things I’ve learned about myself after 17 years of holding this title of Mommy and of course a No Bake Pumpkin Spice Wafer and Cookie Pie
#1 Tom and Jerry is a REALLY funny cartoon. It’s true I never liked Tom and Jerry as a kid- I always thought it was weird watching all action and no dialogue. But since my son has been GLUED to their antics for the past 13 years I can say, I’ve learned to enjoy their repertoire- although I’ve had to point out more than several dozen times that if Jerry gets steamrolled by a Mac truck he will survive- while my kid- won’t have the luxury of getting over it. ( I think the lesson is finally beginning to hold some weight with him).
#2 I have NO PATIENCE. Yeah, 17 years of motherhood and I still don’t know how to handle a kid asking me if he can eat a brownie for dinner 18 thousand times until he wears me down to a little nub and I acquiesce .
#3 My memory is SHOT. I want to say that I am one of those uber incredible moms who remembers her kids’ first words, the day they took their first steps and all those other milestones. I probably should have written them down- but I must have been too busy raising my kid to remember to DOCUMENT it all. And so I have been known to fudge those details when my kids ask me for specifics.
#4 I have a REALLY hard time letting the mess just be. You’d think after reading all these pins about zen in motherhood and how happy kids whose houses are dirty are, and who mothers don’t stress over papers, dust bunnies, toys and teen magazines strewn in ever nook and cranny are- but alas I CANNOT be one of those mothers. I cannot live in chaos, it is NOT happy for me- although perhaps my kids would disagree. Perhaps this means I’m setting my kids up for a life in analysis, lamenting their anal retentive mother who vacuumed almost every other day and how it has either turned them into obsessive cleaners or created an aversion to mess and has caused them to be cast in an episode of HOARDERS.
#5 That I can’t nor do I even want to fathom a life without these kids and just hope I don’t screw them up too bad!
#6 Who would’ve thought that a No Bake Pumpkin Spice Wafer and Cookie Pie Recipe is just one Fun Way to Celebrate STEAM learning with children?! Believe it or not time spent in the kitchen with your kids is an education for them and will inspires children to explore, experiment and pursue their interests in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math. The truth is for most of us, a lifelong love of science started in our home kitchen – mixing up mysterious concoctions, making enormous messes, getting into trouble with mom or dad. Somehow, without being told, we knew that cooking was science. A measure of this, a pinch of that, stir, heat, and viola! that gloppy mess is transformed into a pie!
Cooking involves measuring (math) and chemistry and by the end of your kitchen session, will also result in something yummy for your tummy! And here is our recipe!
