Actually made these… all by myself! They look all gourmet and tricky, right?

They are not. They are delicious and simple, and everyone in this house gobbled them up. Kendall called them bacon cupcakes. If you like bacon and eggs and toast, you should make them (recipe here). We had them for dinner. We’re big rule breakers like that.

Today is Kendall’s last day of summer session at his Mother’s Day Out program. He has a 3 week break (WHYYYYYY????), and then he starts official preschool (K3) in the fall. PRESCHOOL! Before I know it he’ll be starting Kindergarten, and then he’s off to the prom, and then he’s abandoning me for college. I loved this idea I saw on Pinterest a while back, so this morning, after I dropped him off, I went to the bookstore and picked up their last copy of this book.

The idea, originally from Lisa’s Workshop is to get his teachers, principals, coaches, etc. to sign it and write messages in it every year, then to
give it to him at high school graduation. Awww! Love it. So I’m going to get his summer school teachers to write in it today, and I’m going to
get his 2 year old class teachers to, too, since they’re right across the hall. I hope I can keep up with it!

  1. I have seen the book idea and it’s so cute. Never thought of that. My oldest is more than halfway through school. Still got the two little ones though. I did manage to get a totally awesome picture of my oldest last year that I’ll never ever get to do with any of my children again. Well, that might not be true. When my daughter graduated from elementary school though I was able to get a picture of her with all of her teachers Kindergarten through 5th grade. One group shot of them together. That means a lot to me and to her. I won’t be able to do it with my 2nd daughter because we moved to a different school district and she started a new school this past year. It was an important move though. And I have pictures of her with each of her teachers at the start of the school year and end of the school year so if I can keep it up perhaps a nice school days scrapbook for the two big girls when they graduate :). Although, middle school pictures I do not have.

  2. i saw this and thought it was a GREAT idea… of course, I didnt run out and buy the book. I might need to. 2 copies, since both the boys are already in school. Luckily for me- Grady goes to Gavins preschool, so I can get Gavins preschool teachers to retro date their entry 😉 AND gavin has the same teacher this year for first grade as he did for kinder! YAY!

  3. I’m going to go ahead and say my husband will worship my feet if I make those. Thanks for the recipe. I’m totally going to rock his face off with these!

  • Does bedtime change during the summer? Or does it stay the same all year? 🌙
  • We didn’t find any banana slugs on this 2 mile loop trail, but it did gift us with a bench. Calling that a win!  #mothernurturemothernature
  • You don’t get paid for this. You do it because you’re a dad, and that’s just what dads do. #happyfathersday2018
  • So grateful to have a partner who picks up what I drop, kisses the booboos I miss, reads the bedtime stories I have to work through, and loves our kids in ways I aspire to. Happy Fathers Day to him and all the dads who are doing this exhausting and exhilarating thing called parenthood 💖
  • It’s estimated 2,000 children (some as young as one) have been taken from their parents at our border in the last 6 weeks alone. MANY of these families are asylum seekers and it is not illegal to seek asylum. They left horrific conditions not because they want to break our laws or lose their children but because they want their children to live. Please join me and my friends from all over the political spectrum to oppose this unnecessary and cruel mandate that is traumatizing children and ripping families apart with no clear plan or guarantee for reunification. This is not a Democrat or Republican issue- it’s a HUMAN issue. I can not stay silent about this. My latest blog post has links and a script you can read to your Rep & Senators when you call them. It’s so easy to DO SOMETHING. Check out my FB Live to watch me call my reps. #familiesbelongtogether
  • Danger Baby keeps earning his nickname, insisting on climbing things and running off and generally loving all things that are dangerous to babies. We are in a different city nearly every week these days, and it’s SO important that we know not only where the nearest ER is, but if it’s actually equipped to take care of babies and small children. Did you know that not all are?? I’ve teamed up with @rbabyfoundation to tell you all about their life saving, free app — Find ER Now — that will tell you where the closest ER is to you, and with the .99 cent upgrade, it will tell you  which ones are equipped to treat your littles. I’m so honored to work with them. PLEASE check out my stories for more info, including a link to download the app. #sponsored #rbabyfoundation #findernow

  • Lately Wallace has been jumping right in to everything we’re doing. He wants to watch movies with us, play ball, wrestle, eat Takis 🤣 and everything else. I forgot how much I love this stage. I think maybe it gets more fun the more kids you have. You really can not tell him he’s not a big kid. He’s not having any of that nonsense. (And yeah, he loves him some spicy Takis.) (This is totally one of those pics that looks like they swapped legs!)
