Homemade, easy and delicious Summer Treat
Who doesn’t like delicious ice cream in the middle of summer? Heck, we love ice-cream even in the winter time. There is something about crumbled cookies in the ice cream; it gives you just a bit of crunch, more sweetness, and one tasty bite. We just loved this ice-cream flavor as well.
My husband, Nebs, loves ice creams. His personal favorite is Rocky Road, but after eating this one he said it is probably this one if I added a handful of nuts. It didn’t cross my mind but hey if you feel adventures please add your favorite nuts into ice cream mixture. I think pecans or walnuts would work very well with this favor.
Now, Ice-Cream sandwiches are something totally different. My kids’ love, love, love ice-cream sandwiches and what better way to create some memories this summer season than let them make these delicious sandwiches themselves. I think they did one amazing job. Well, my oldest one was working, but I still have these two munchkins that are still willing to do these kinds of things with me. I just enjoy every single moment.
Anna, my middle baby, is starting High School this August so I am trying not only to teach her a thing or two but to spend as much time as possible with her. They grow way to fast. Thank goodness that my 12-year-old still loves hugs and cuddles because before you know it teenage hormones will kick in and goodbye hugs until the end of high school haha. If you have teens than you probably already know this. As soon as 7th grade comes, suddenly they are wrapped up in some kind of drama. Trust me on that one!
I believe that parents should talk to their kids every single day, and at the same time allow them to express themselves with less judgment. We need to give them understanding and love rather than go into what other people going to say. Goodness! I know a thing or two about that one but I didn’t give a shit because if my daughter wanted blue or green hair I allowed her to color it.
You know grown-ups are sometimes bigger bullies than kids are, or maybe those kids see it from their parents which I hate to say it. We can’t judge the kids by their parents or vice versa. I love my kids, and I want them to live54hb their life the best way they can.
Anyhow, maybe I should consider having a monthly post just regarding kids; bits of advice, the things that I went through with my kids and perhaps some of you would like to join the conversation, sharing your story about it and help other parents.
