So I gathered my items.
A Box of Twinkies that may or may not have had 10 twinkies to begin with but somehow I only had 5 to work with.
Butter Cream Icing (or store bought)
Candy for eyes
Go to pull out my ButterCream that I always have on hand and I don't have enough to cover 3 let alone 5 and I sure as heck don't have time or energy to make any so my Mummies ended up looking like they had Egyptian Mummy Wrappers (yeah I made that up, I don't know the official wrapping term) who got really lazy and said the hell with it and half wrapped their mummy booty's and threw them in their tomb and said SEE YA SUCKERS!
So I'm trying to take pictures of these horrible looking creatures and all the time Monkey is having a blast, loving it, talking to her mummies, and thanking me. So right then I realized I took a fun thing and made it stressful because it didn't look like the picture on a professional decorating website and was just ashamed of myself. I almost let myself steal the joy of spending time with Monkey. So I looked around, saw the huge mess, smoke still coming out of the oven, chocolate covered Monkey face, and soaked it all in. I was making memories.
I took her outside and gave her the little mummy she had been eye balling the whole time and captured shots of her holding her "precious."
So next time you're stressing out over the mess or the project that didn't come out "perfect" or "blog worthy" remember that to your child it is perfect and that's what is important!
She just kept starring at it and smiling!
I kept trying to get her to take a bit and she just would talk to it.
She Loves Him
Finally she takes a bite.
Enjoying her Mummy with her Poppa
She looks like her Poppa but in this picture she really looks like him!
Happy Friday Ya'll
