S'more Trail Mix


Our first week of summer vacation is in full swing.  

Last week was a doozy!  Rye had all four wisdom teeth pulled on Monday.  She recovered much faster than I had thought she would.  I have no experience with wisdom teeth as I never got any.  I don't know how rare that is but I am so glad that I was one of the few that did not have them.  

The dentist was the last place I ever wanted to be and that fear kept with me all the way until just a few years ago.  I finally realized that it wasn't as bad as my mind made it out to be.  I can't tell you the anxiety that would build up inside of me with each visit I had to make.

I think what finally helped was that my kids were my hero's of courage.  They never bat an eye when I say it is time for a dentist appointment.  They walk in laughing and leave even happier.  How is that possible?

Their bravery has helped me to over-come any anxiety that settled into my bones the night before.  I had less fear of having a baby than I did having my tooth pulled in January.  Silly--I know.

This is not unusual for my kids to be teaching me little things about life.  I know as a parent I am the one they should look to for advice, encouragement and safety but several times in my own life I find them giving these three things to me.  

I am not really sure what S'MORE I could ask for?  

To say thanks to my kids for being my super hero's here is a yummy treat I made just for them to kick off our summer fun.

I love you--Rye, Drake, Isabella and Finnley.

ENJOY!
