Red Velvet Blossom Cookies are easy to make with red velvet cake mix and Hershey’s Kisses! These are the perfect holiday cookie, especially for Valentine’s Day.
Both my parents worked when I was a kid, so up until third grade I went to in-home daycare. There were two of them, the first was before I was five and don’t really remember much, except that the lady was awesome and we remained friends with the family until after I was out of high school. That’s where, at the tender age of three or something, I learned to change a diaper and I got married to the boy I napped with (they figured I slept with him, so we should be married).
The second daycare I went to, in grade school, was not so heart-warming and awe-inspiring as the first. I mean, I was safe and all. I never lost a hand or got forgotten at school. But the lady was definitely someone who was in the childcare profession only because she had kids my age and probably would have been better suited to a different profession. One that did not deal with small children. (Hey, I’m not judging. Sometimes I know that the universe made a good decision when it gave me only one kid.)
Here are a few things I learned while in her care:
If you have kids the same ages as your charges, they MUST play together. And if your daughter makes the babysittee play the dog in a game of house, it’s perfectly fine.
If you provide a healthy, state-approved snack after school, it MUST be Wheat Thins. Every day. (For three years, people. It took me until college to be able to look at that yellow box again.)
Toilet paper squares MUST be torn straight across. No jagged edges are ever allowed! If you leave a jagged edge, you will be required to go repair your infraction.
Red and pink do NOT match and should never be worn together.
Now, I really don’t understand that last one. Red and pink not matching? Ridiculous.
I mean, if red and pink didn’t match, what would we wear on Valentine’s Day? The themed holiday industry would probably implode on itself.
Red Velvet Cookies might not be a thing if it wasn’t for red and pink on Valentine’s Day!!
