As I was cleaning out kitchen cabinets this past weekend, I came across a little something from my childhood that brought back many good memories.
How many of you were lucky enough to have a mom that pulled out a "homemade" popsicle on a hot summer day after you had a hard day outside playing (with all your might) in the hot sunshine? My mom would call us to the door and hand out those popsicles to my brother and me and to all our neighborhood friends that were hanging out in the yard as well! Oh, how refreshing they were! I thought they were the best thing!
So I really was excited to come across these little treasures. I showed them to Joy (I had used them when Colt was younger before she came along or could remember it). Joy was just as excited. Of course, she wouldn't let me waste ANY tme mixing her favorite flavor, lemonade, to fill those popsicle holders.
I think she must has asked me every ten minutes, "Do you think they're ready yet?" Unfortunately they weren't ready before we had to leave for dance, so she had to wait it out. But believe me, she wasted NO time once we got home (after getting out of dance clothes) to treat herself to one of those treats that I used to enjoy just as much....a good ole homemade popsicle.
I have to admit though...I've let her eat way too many in the past two days. But what can I say, I'm a softie and I remember what it's like to be a kid. Besides it put a smile on her face..........and mine.
