Everyone always asks what Mom wants for breakfast in bed. I’m going to let you in on a little secret: Mom doesn’t want breakfast in bed; she wants brunch. Seriously people, it’s the 21st century…haven’t we been over this? Mom wants to sleep. The end.

Okay well, THIS mom wants to sleep. Don’t get me wrong- I’m a morning person. I enjoy getting up with the kids. The worst part, however, is hitting the ground running. I usually wake up to the sound of our toddler crashing things around in his room. Once children realize that Mom is awake they want to play and read and run and jump and eat NOW.

Also, this mom wants a little pink in her life. Pink things just taste better don’t you think? If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen a few teasers about this post. I just can’t help myself; pink things are photogenic. When I saw this  Jelly Belly Cotton Candy Syrup I knew immediately that I was going to make something with it: Cotton Candy Mousse!
