Let Them Eat Dirt!

Hey Mamas,

One had dirt in his teeth and the other had mud on his shirt. I watched the other boys eat worms and laugh with dirt on their hands. Yes, my boys were eating dirt, mud, and worms last night. Jasiyah begged me to make this recipe that he had at school. Spring is now feeling like summer and all the family loves something cool and sweet. If you like to create quick fun desserts for your little ones try my "Worms in Dirt" recipe....

What you will need...

  • A pack of 6 JELLO chocolate pudding cups
  • Oreos
  • Whipped Cream
  • A pack of gummie worms
  • Milk
  • Cups
  • A spoon
  • 2 bowls

First I dumped out all the pudding from the JELLO cups into a bowl. I sprayed some whipped cream in the bowl and stirred it together. I covered the pudding mixture and placed it in the fridge to keep it cool.

Then in another bowl I tossed in two or more hand fulls of Oreo cookies. Sprayed some whipped cream in and poured a little bit of milk on the cookies. I crushed the cookies up until it looked like soil. You can make the cookie mixture wet or dry. If you want it to be a dry mixture just crush up the Oreos without the whipped cream and milk.

After that I got the cups. I put the cookie crumb mixture at the bottom of each cup. I then took out the pudding spooned that out on top of the cookie crumbs. Sprinkled some cookie crumbs on the pudding and placed the gummie worm on top.

Quick and let them eat dirt!

Mama needed her Mommy...

Hey Mamas,
On this hot and gloomy morning I was thinking of a few weeks ago. I felt so broken down and so small that all I could do is think of my mother. Looking at her in my father in a wedding picture I thought what was she like then. In my self pity I felt broken down like a child and decided to call my mother for help. I was barely able to talk as I cried I need my mommy, I need my mother. My mother didn't have too much to say but that she was on her way. It doesn't matter how old you get you will always still want your mother. As I watched my mother play with my sons and calmed my nerves I knew she brought comfort. As tough as I try to be and not tell her all the things I'm going through I needed her to be there. In her comfort she told me things I needed to hear even if I didn't want to hear them. I remember my sister and I always gathering around her to watch a movie or just to talk. I hope one day to have a daughter of my own to share that bond. My mother will probably want to kill me for putting up this picture of her and my older sister Keha but I love the picture. I love my mother... and that day she was there for me and she brought me comfort to my heart.
Love your mother everyday...I don't need a day to realize how special my mother is to me.
