Mini Chocolate Banana Zucchini Muffins

Let’s talk about life.

How come life can be so incredibly fast at one moment, and insanely slow the next?

For example…A workout on a tired day seems like an ETERNITY. Running errands with two babies seems like a lifetime. And trying to make my husbands 11 hour work days go quickly is practically impossible…

Then I realize that in just ONE day my sweet Boo will be attending Preschool three times a week for THREE hours. What? 3 days…3 hours…But she’s only a baby! If there’s anything that I wish could slow down it would be the rate my babies are growing up!

Sometimes I feel like the most amazing moments in life go by so quickly, and if we aren’t careful, we miss them. Which is why I’ve decided to put boo back in diapers and start feeding her bottles. It’s the only way to keep her young…

Or I could just make her chocolate muffins for her little pink lunch pail that fits neatly in her tiny pink backpack…And as I send her off to school I will make sure to hold on to that moment forever. Because before I know it I won’t be packing a tiny pink lunch pail anymore…Instead she will be asking for 20 bucks to go get Starbucks with her girl friends.

On second thought…Diapers and bottles sound a lot better to me.

Now If you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go wrap my three year old in a blanket and rock her to sleep like she’s 3 months old. ๐Ÿ™‚

    My parents are going to be empty-nesters next year as I go to college (and my brother has been in college for two years already)! I can’t even believe it. I even want time to slow down as I watch my baby cousins grow up, because our age gap is ha-yuge!
    Best of luck to your boo heading to preschool! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Your parents aren’t going to know what to do with them selves!! ๐Ÿ™‚ My parents will be empty nesters in a couple months too when my brother leaves! Time is too fast!
