Slow Down, Focus, Enjoy Your Rice Krispies

Thursday, 29 December 2011 11:39
My dish to pass at a recent family gathering was Rice Krispies, and although my pan was nearly licked clean, this cooking project did not start out so promising. In my family, we have a tradition of peanut butter rice crispy treats. As such, the recipe calls for different ingredients than are stamped on the side of the cereal box.

As the mother of two-year-old, twin boys, there are certain realities I accept. My house won’t be really clean for a long time, and I will have daily conversations about who has a peepee, and who doesn’t. I accept these realities, because they come along with my boys greeting me at the door at the end of each day. And that’s such a joyful thing—you can’t even begin to imagine that kind of joy before you have children.
