Teacher Gifts

Today I sent the boys to school with boxes of these Gingerbread Whoopie Pies. They are made from cake-y gingerbread cookies, lemon cream and then you roll them through crushed peppermint candies. I sampled one and they are fantastic! I definitely recommend them!

This has been rough week. It’s funny because I was sort of looking forward to cold season. I so like me a nice and cozy cold..extra snuggle time on the couch…and how it slows us down. But this virus was the PITS. It was NOT what I was looking for in the “nice and cozy cold” department. Andrew missed four days of school this week and Isaac missed three and I was cooped up and a wee bit stir crazy. The good news is that we are on the other end of it and I am more appreciative than EVER of healthy days and rambunctious boys! :)

And now the weekend…

About robyn

I stopped teaching Kindergarten in 2005 to become the mom of two crazy boys here in Brooklyn. At first I thought being a stay at home mom meant that I needed to pour all my time and energy directly into my sons, but I realized somewhere along the way that being a rockstar mom meant not only taking good care of my boys, but also taking good care of myself. And taking good care of myself means pursuing something creative...just about everyday. I started Made In Brooklyn to motivate myself in my creative goals as well as share my work with others and perhaps inspire them in their own creative journeys.

    These would have been appreciated immensly robyn!
    We have bugs and viruses here too – exactly NOT what is required for this time of the year. I hope your crew is feeling better soon and that you have a restful weekend in store.
