Summer heat is on the way, and when it arrives my kids gobble up boxes of popsicles.
Growing up my mom used to make us homemade popsicles using those Tupperware molds. So, of course when I became a mom, I, too, purchased a Tupperware ice pop mold set. Unfortunately mine has gone missing (must have gotten buried in the sand box last summer). So I have begun surfing to purchase a new popsicle maker kit, and I found a couple really fun ones over at amazon.com – I purchased the Rocket ones for my kiddos.
Blue Rocket Pop Molds by Tovolo

Green Shooting Star Pop Molds by Tovolo

My Favorite New Tradition:
I just purchased two copies of the Dr. Seuss book Oh, the Places You’ll Go to use as a new tradition with my two youngest boys (Caleb and Nate-no). My plan is at the end of each school year to have their school teacher write a little note inside the book to them. When they graduate from High School I will present the filled book to them and allow others to sign it at their graduation party.
I came up with this idea as I was looking at the copy ofthis book given to my #1 son(Stephen Jr)when he graduated from Kindergarten. The giver had signed the book with a little note to him. It’s too late to now to have all of Stephen Jr’s teachers sign his copy – he graduates from High School next week. But, there is still time for a new tradition for the 2 youngest boys. Now to just remember to have their teachers sign it each year…

My Favorite Proud MOM Moments:
As a MOM we often have those proud and not-so-proud moments in our parenting journey. Some we share and then there are some we wish we could hide, only they happened right in public view.
It has been quite the week and month for the Novotny kids, so as a proud MOM who, like you, loves sharing the accomplishments of her kiddos, I thought I’d share some of those moments with you. Maybe next week I’ll share the not-so-proud moments (depends on how not-so-proud they are).
1. #1 Son was accepted to attend Western Washington University fall of 2008. It was the only college he applied at so we were holding our breath, as 9,400 students applied for 2,600 spots. WHEW!
