Bite me.

Every Friday from January through March, my girls take the ski bus up to the mountains to ski.  I never rode the ski bus when I was in school, but I've heard many stories.  Now that I'm a parent, I am turning a blind eye to the actions of the teens and send them off to the mountains with a kiss. It's mostly Junior High and High School students and my girls are 11 & 13.  I feel better knowing there are chaperones on the bus, but still... I worry.

Each week I bake a batch of cookies to send off with them.  Needless to say, they're a hit.  This week I made heart shaped sugar cookies frosted to look like conversation hearts.  I told my girls as we were frosting them that I planned on writing sayings on each of the cookies.  My oldest was mortified.  "Mom NO!  That's embarassing!!  I feel so stupid giving someone a cookie that says 'Be Mine' on it."  I offered to change it up a bit and write "Bite Me" on it, but it was still a 'No'.  We ended up sprinkling a little colored sprinkle on top and calling it done.  They ended up pretty cute and I'm sure they will be gobbled up just fine.

I can't be on the bus with them, but at least they can take a little of my love with them.

Happy Valentines Day!
