Friday was the Gingerbread Party at the boys’ preschool.
Search and Destroy were thrilled with their creations. With good reason – the resulting houses are adorable!
I was less thrilled with the continued insistence that their teacher said the houses could be eaten for dinner.
- I’m relatively certain that was said in the moment to prevent 60+ preschoolers from eating candy instead of decorating.
But as unappealing as boxed gingerbread glued together with frosting and adorned with stale candy may seem to you or me, I acquiesced to devouring them for dessert.
If the cannibalistic witch from Hansel and Gretel ever tempts Search, I fear for his well-being. He clearly won’t be able to resist the enticement to sample a candy-coated abode.
Then again, he has certainly proven himself to be quite the little fighter…
