Five Reasons why I am NOT a cool mom:
1. I have lost interest in swimming. In fact I prefer to stay out of the water entirely.
2. One game of tag is fun, any more is not.
3. I yell, enforce bedtimes and insist the kids clean their rooms on a weekly basis.
4. I do not like dressing up for Halloween.
5. I serve Brussels sprouts
Five reasons why I AM a cool mom:
1. I can still do handstands, cartwheels and pirouettes.
2. I love dance parties and family game night.
3. I always have open arms, open ears, kisses and encouragement.
4. I love playing fun pranks for April Fools.
5. I make desserts…lots of desserts.
After today, I can officially add a 6th reason to my cool mom list. I made this creamy caramel fruit dip. Fruit is certainly good enough on its own, but dips make eating food more fun, even fruit! Sometimes it’s ok to spruce up fruit and this dip makes the kids feel like they are eating dessert! And therein lies the crux of what makes me cool….making plain fruit feel like dessert! I do believe this cancels out the brussel sprouts!
