I am often descended upon by my children’s friends. We are that house where they all come to hang out at and often sleep over.
The boys are easy…the girls, well let’s just say they are a little bit
nosier, drama-filled, attention seeking, incredibly messy, room destroying…ummm, harder. 9 year old girls might be harder however its the boys who are like a plague of locusts! They can eat more than I ever knew possible!
My son is 12 and one of the ways I let him be explore his increasing independence is by letting him organize hang-outs with his buddies. However they always seems to be here, at our house, lol. I am not sure who to “blame” for that. My son I guess. But that’s ok, he obviously likes it here, his friends like it here and at the end of the day it lets me have him more and anytime I can be around my kids makes me happy (except when they are reeeaaallly messy that is)!
I plan when I can, and make sure I have baked goods, extra food, water and juice on hand for these gatherings. This 5 Minute Peanut Butter Dip is perfect for just such an occasion. It’s easy, gives them some protein and fruit can be served as one of the vehicles. BUT don’t forget the chocolate!! This dip tastes just like the inside of a peanut butter cup, smooth and creamy and you know what the best dipper for that is don’t you??
For me, deep dark chocolate is the best with this, just one square and one dip and Colleen is a happy, happy girl!
