Yesterday I learned multiple life lessons. One- trust your gut. Two- always keep a clean kitchen and living room. Three- baked goods make a great Thank You gift.
I was supposed to be galavanting around San Francisco right now trying fabulous new foods and hopefully connecting with new brands. Well, on Sunday night, my dear son came down with croup. We have dealt with this many times before, but I just knew that he was going to be miserable and that I would have felt guilty the entire time, so I cancelled my trip. Then yesterday, his breathing (or lack thereof) got so bad that we actually had to call 911 and he had to be taken to the hospital. It was seriously one of the scariest days of my life. Needless to say I was/am so happy I trusted my gut and stayed home. In hindsight however, I really wish that I hadn’t moped around yesterday and had actually gotten up to do the dishes and clean up the toys, because the fire fighters definitely gave my house the once over!
Anyway, now that Ben is back home and feeling much better, we decided to bake some treats for the fire fighters and paramedics as a thank you. We wanted something easy and delicious. We still have loads of candy canes so I thought we would use them up. Plus, chocolate and peppermint go so well together.
Baby Ben was so proud to offer a plate of these to the fire fighters. They were so kind to make a huge deal out of his gift and gave him a tour of the truck. He has been gleaming ever since!
