So one of the struggles I have keeping up with the blog is time. I try really hard not to work on projects while the kids are awake because I feel like I’m not giving them my undivided attention. Well the other day I wanted to drop by a little gift to a friend of mine. Me and the kids were bored (so ready for AZ summers to be over)… so I decided that we’ll make some banana bread together. As much as my son LOVES to help.. I usually try to make things while he’s asleep. He is only two.. so his way of “helping” usually creates a complete mess.
However that day I decided … what the heck? He had so much fun helping me make this enemy pie… I knew he would have a great time making banana bread. He was the “masher” and the “dumper”. And boy did those bananas get mashed! At the end of the day there was bananas smashed on the floor, and flour dust still on the counters… but do you know what I’ve realized. It doesn’t matter! I’m teaching my son… and we had a great time together! I’m excited to find more projects we can work on together.

My son also helped me make tags for the bread while it was cooling. To make the tags I used the Possibilities line from Lifestyle Crafts and distressed the edges a little with distressing ink.
We had a great time together! And you know what… the ink happily came off the table (thank goodness)!

Hope everyone is having a fabulous Wednesday! Thanks so much for reading!
