Today was not only National Poultry Day (thank goodness I didn’t have to make another dessert) but also Absolutely Incredible Kid Day.
Absolutely Incredible Kid Day is a Camp Fire holiday requesting people to write letters to children in America. With this in mind I decided to celebrate my own Incredible Kids.
I remembered an idea from the activity book, “Let’s Make A Memory,” about making your kids feel special.
My boys are still young but I decided to try it out anyway.
I told Jeffrey someone “special” was coming over for dinner – when in reality he was the “special” guest. I asked what he thought we should make and he requested macaroni and cheese.
Seeing as it was National Poultry Day I twisted his request a little and made Lemon Chicken Pasta Alfredo. He loves pasta and he loves chicken so it was a good trade.
I knew Jack would enjoy it too.
I lit a couple candles (I knew Jeff would think this was cool) and told my boys (well mainly Jeffrey) they were the “special” guests! I explained how Incredible I think they are and how thankful I am to have them.
For dessert I used small cups to make apple crisp parfaits (no they aren’t shot glasses – just little toddler cups).
They enjoyed it. I did too… minus the hyper let-me-put my-feet-on Jack’s-tray-and-poke-him-with-a-fork-battle.
