Back-to-School Dessert Suggestions

Even though school started a week ago, Aria is having a hard time adjusting to this new transition in her life. She is beginning to understand the emotions she's feeling but still has very little control over them. Every time I drop her off in the morning, she sobs uncontrollably because she wants to "stay and play with Maman Kiki," and that is hard to watch. She's the only child who sheds tears in the morning now; it's somehow embarrassing! On the other hand, I've noticed she asks to dress herself and puts her shoes on by herself now. After a few days at school, she's already tending to be more independent. We encourage her and try to make preschool a very positive experience. 

As a new mom, I try to come up with new ideas when I pick her up from school. On the first day, I showed up with a giant "smiley face" helium balloon, I also bought new Dr, Seuss books and took her to her favorite book store afterward. But her favorite of all is the snack / desserts I prepare for her. I made a list of the treats and I hope this inspires you to create a similar dish if your child experiences the same reactions as my little Aria. Have a wonderful weekend!
