First thoughts: Wait, how many popsicles will we need to make and eat so that we have enough to make this garland? Ohhhh….that’s a whole bunch of popsicles. Tummyache time. Oef.
Realization: Wait! We can simply buy a kit! Yay!
Second thoughts: Wait…. I’d rather make and eat the popsicles. Mmmm…….!

You’ll need to watch this video at least twice: once to giggle to pieces over the 4-year-old pastry chef, and once to catch the recipe tips ‘n tricks. [3 mins 37 sec one way]
Also: Pete is a 4-year-old who is all kinds of comfy in the kitchen? I’m a little bit older than 4, and I still haven’t made red velvet anything.
Off I go to investigate what other 4-year-olds are baking these days.

My dad’s navel oranges are at their best right now, and I could eat them all right now.
Remember that Japanese portable juicer thing?
Cool. Catchy song, too.
Remember manually peeling an extremely juicy orange and making a happy mess because the fresh orange juice splattered all over you?
If I may gently observe, I think you’re missing out.
Go find a bag of oranges and dive face first into them.
Call everyone you know and repeat.

It’s been years since I was last on the family farm, which explains why I was having the umpteenth argument with myself that blackberries and mulberries look exactly the same.
Absent the source, and if I’m not able to touch ’em or taste ’em, yes, I’m going to confuse ’em.
Eating ’em? Ah, no problem!
They don’t look alike, though…do they?
