My first thought when I woke up this morning was a quote that I came across on Etsy a while back: “Wake up every morning with the thought that something wonderful is about to happen.”
I like the breathless optimism of that statement. That’s a fine way of looking at life.
And then we did a lot of wonderful somethings.
We went swinging and sliding at the park.
We made peanut butter balls and a card for my husband’s grandpa’s 90th birthday party tomorrow.
We read books. Lots and lots of books.
And we ate snacks.
Smiley-faced snacks made out of:
- bananas for hair
- raspberries for eyes
- Dove milk chocolates with peanut butter for the nose (they’re smooth and rich and good…but I still prefer dark chocolate), and…
- string cheese for the mouth
Yesterday, I put one of those Dove chocolates on my daughter’s salad plate at lunch time. After eating, she announced, “I like chocolate better than salad.” Duly noted.
YOUR TURN: What snacks do you give to your kids? Do you like milk or dark chocolate better?
