Did you watch "Facts of Life" when you were growing up? I loved that show. I was quoting Blair in my title, remember how she used to say that? Anyway, someday maybe I'll post about my love of 80's television. It was great wasn't it?
Any-who, two days in a row! Two tips! Holy cow, I must be on a roll or something.
Ice cream is my go-to before bed snack. I can always get the kids to stop jumping on the couch long enough to have a little ice cream before they get in the tub and get ready for bed. I don't feel too terrible having it often because I don't let them eat junk food very often and they eat healthy meals most of the time. Besides, ice cream=milk=calcium, right?!
Cones make ice cream way better don't they?
So here is my genius way of getting them ready for all the kids at once...
Really, I was pretty proud of myself for thinking of this one. I mean, it's tough scooping the ice cream out and then putting it in a tiny cone. And this way, no one gets their cone "first." I put the glasses out at the same time and then they scarf them down like savages. The glasses are nice if the kids want to put the cones down for a second, you know in case they want to go jump on the couch one last time before I drag their sticky little bodies upstairs for bath time.
