You guys. I love Myla dearly. I really really do. And I LOVE the fact that I get to be home with her. I wouldn’t trade it for anything. But I gotta tell you….she’s kind of annoying right now!
I know it comes with the two year old territory – the strong will, the demands, the need for independence. It’s just….I forgot what it’s like to live with one. To be constantly ordered around by one. To navigate the seemingly ridiculous requests and ever-changing whims of a little two year old. Let’s just say it’s testing my patience.
Because she literally wants to do EVERYTHING herself. From taking her pants off to putting her shoes on to getting in her carseat to closing the refrigerator door…..and everything in between. Which means everything takes FOREVER! Especially when I forget, and she demands a re-do…..
Now, before you tell me it’s ridiculous to let a two year old run the show, let me just say: I KNOW!!! I’m finding it ridiculous DAILY. And I’d love to put a stop to it! But I also know that this is a phase….and a necessary one, at that. And rather than shut it down, I feel like it’s best to just let it run its course. And drown my annoyance in White Chocolate Cranberry Macadamia Magic Bars.
These bars combine the classic white chocolate cranberry macadamia nut combo with the deliciousness of magic bars. And the result? Well, it’s nothing short of magical. There’s something about the sugar cookie crust and the cranberries and the coconut and the macadamia nuts….all drizzled in white chocolate and baked to gooey perfection….that’s enough to make it all better. At least momentarily. Now let’s just hope this phase doesn’t last too long. I’d like to have some White Chocolate Cranberry Macadamia Magic Bars to share with the rest of you!
