Celebrating National Honey Month
This post is sponsored by the National Honey Board, however the content and opinions expressed are my own.
Last week my baby started Pre-Kindergarten. Time is going fast, and I’m determined to savor these golden moments I still have with her at home with some special, 1:1 time.. Since she is getting to be such a big girl, I thought it would be fun to have a special tea party with her, letting her make a new recipe, a Honey Bear after school snack, all by herself.
You see, she is so excited to go to her bumblebee themed classroom a few 1/2 days per week, and lamented on the first day she didn’t have a bee costume to wear ????
Then, this weekend,we were especially excited to have guests who just started bee keeping. We enjoyed all their stories and pictures, and even got one of their first bottles of honey as a hostess gift. As a result, the kids are pretty sure we should start beekeeping, too (um, no.).
So, it felt especially serendipitous when I received a golden box of goodies from the National Honey Board to inspire us to celebrate National Honey Month with some honey, beautiful party decorations and easy, kid-friendly recipes.
Time is going fast, and I’m determined to savor these golden moments I still have with her at home. Since she is getting to be such a big girl, I thought it would be fun to let her make one of the recipes included in the box, all by herself.
To make the Honey Bear after school snack, just start by spreading peanut butter on a slice of bread.
Next, lay thinly sliced apples on top.
Finally, drizzle with honey. Or squeeze a huge glob on. Whatevs. She was just so excited that I let her do it, all by herself!
This is such a special way to sit down, give her my undivided attention, and talk about her morning at school.
Sometimes as a mom, I compare myself to all the other moms on social media who seemingly are constantly taking their kids to this or that event, and enrolling them in all the latest and greatest activities. I get scared that maybe I’m not measuring up in comparison. Maybe I’m not doing enough?
But sometimes it’s the little moments that remind me that 1:1 time with me is enough, to show them they are important and loved. That they can feel secure when they are home with family.
