Today's the big day. My lil man starts pre-school. I've been a nervous wreck all weekend. Normally a super early riser, my love actually slept til passed 7 this morning. Meanwhile, I've been awake since 5:30 waiting for him to get up.
To start the school year off, I made brown rice crispy treats for his classmates and teachers. He liked the idea and so far seems excited for school. We decided that the hubs take him to school only because my son is used to seeing his dad leave and come back. Me, i'll just be at home hoping that my love has a great first day at school. *fingers crossed*
When I reached out to my friends on Facebook about how to handle my sons first day away from me. They gave me some really great advice. One particular advice was to give him something that reminds him of me. My dad bought him a gold bracelet with his name engraved on it for his 1st birthday. And thought it would be the perfect little gift to give him as a reminder of me, his mommy and his daddy while at school. We shall see.
Kellogs Rice Krispies Recipe with modifications
1 Bag of Mini Marshmallows (about 10 oz)
3-1/2 tbsp Butter
6 Cups of Crispy Brown Rice Cereal
1. Melt the butter and marshmallows completely in a large enough pan to fit the cereal too.
2. Mix in the crispy brown rice cereal and coat well. Spray your pan with some non-stick baking spray.
3. Press the rice crispy mixture into a pan of your choice. Take wax paper and press evenly to mold the crispy treats and allow to cool. Flip pan over to release the crispy treats.
4. Cut up the treats, wrap in saran wrap and tie a cute little bow!
Here's to a great school year! Enjoy my friends!
