I was in the shower when my little guy woke up this morning with exciting news. As I poked my head around the shower curtain to listen, this is what he had to say. “Mama I want to tell you two things. One, I had a big boogie sticking out of my nose and I picked it out of there. And two, I was coughing and then I burped at the same time. It felt quite good.” Ahhh, such is life with a little boy. . . I wouldn’t trade it.
Even with a kit in hand, many of you can attest that building a gingerbread house can be a frustrating and tear evoking task, especially when the kids are eagerly waiting to adorn it with editable windows and sugar-covered roofs. Through the years (and trial and error) I came up with a tear-free solution to building our beautiful brown baked houses, and it all comes down to planning.
