Not a bike lesson, but a lesson in my neighborhood’s after school snacks.
I got a new bike for my birthday, a cruiser. As I was dreaming about adding a front basket for my fresh produce and long baguette, my two kids and i set out on our first neighborhood bike ride.
Two of their friends joined us. One mom came out asking if they could come in for a bowl of ice cream. I said no because i have homemade chicken soup waiting for them and i didn’t want to spoil their appetite, but thank you. Meanwhile, one of their friends is trying her best to tear off a piece of chewy, stretchy, five neon-colored, striped, sparkly candy.
We go through a park, down a pretty path and ’round the corner. We pass more wonderful friends who stop the car to hand one of my kids a Hershey’s kiss and a peppermint candy.
By the way, it’s a measly Tuesday…with not a holiday in site.
If you have kids, what do you feed them for an after school snack?
