And then, I realized. I don't have pint-sized Ziploc baggies. I don't have gallon-sized Ziploc baggies. What do I have? Sandwich baggies. Crap. But I'm the queen of improvisation when it comes to motherhood (and life in general), so I searched my cabinets and found...Ziploc storage containers. Perfect! I decided to divide the recipe in half and put it into two sandwich baggies instead of one pint-sized baggie, then put those into the storage containers for the kids to shake. What kid doesn't like to shake a box that just happens to be filled with ice?
Apparently, my kids:
|"I shook it three times, Momma, is it ready yet?"|
|Grady just wanted to eat it right away, container and all.|
When I couldn't shake it anymore, I took the baggies out, rinsed them off, and put the slightly melty concoction into a bowl and a coffee mug for the kids to devour. Here's the results:
|Yes, I realize my son is sitting in a pink booster seat.|
It's okay, he's comfortable with his masculinity.
|She was quite thrilled with the "banilla" flavor.|
