Love in its most simple form.
That is...until your kids start complaining that one and a half rice krispie treats are not enough, they are still hungry - and wish that you had made something that would fill them up instead.
(But don't you just love how the black and white photos imply nostalgia and a sense of good old fashioned fun? Like we were some kind of "families are so happy with rice krispie treats" commercial.)
BDEM: All my kids have been super obsessed with Ghostbusters lately...and I couldn't be more proud. Today Ella actually said to me, "I was just about to say, eight o'clock?" Anyway, Jude was watching me make the above treats, and I sat by as he had this little conversation with himself:
"Hmmm...so if you squeeze an orange - you get orange juice. If you squeeze a grape, you get grape juice. But if you squeeze a marshmallow, you get fluff. And fluff is the stuff that falls over pencil-neck on Ghostbusters. So that means, The Marshmallow Man is made of fluff." He paused - then the lightbulb struck. "MOM!!! I eat Marshmallow Man sandwiches for lunch!" (He LOVES fluffer-nutter sandwiches.)
