Happy Last Day Of School + Birthday Cake Pancakes Recipe

We celebrated the last day of school on Tuesday afternoon. I’m not sure who was more excited- me or the kids? Probably me. Five kids in 4 different school is a lot, y’all. So mama was doing some serious cheering when the last kid got off the last school bus of the year. I even talked two of them into posing for a picture for me. I meant to take one in the morning before we left for school but I ran out of time. I accidentally turned off my alarm a day early so I was the mom dropping off her kid in pajamas with bedhead and no make up. At least I didn’t have to walk them into the building- if we’d arrived 3 minutes later my kids would’ve had to enjoy being seen with their pajama clad mama as we marched to the office to sign in. I think we’re all grateful that didn’t happen. 

 

 

 

 

I can’t believe how much they’ve grown up since school started last August. Mase especially seem like a big kid compared to when he started Kindergarten 9 short months ago. His teacher choked up when telling me how much she will miss him and how much she enjoyed having him in her class. She was the absolute best teacher I could have ever hoped for Mase to have as his introduction to school. He never had a bad day in her class, never came home with a discipline report, and never had to clip down in class. I’m super proud of him.

 

Maia ended the year with straight A’s on her last report card and some of the highest EOG test scores in the state. Third grade ended up being a lot more fun than she anticipated. Maia is one of those kids who worries and frets about stuff until she drives herself crazy. She made a lot of good friends this year, learned how to deal with mean girls without resorting to abandoning her own values, and we began to see glimpses of the young lady she is going to be.

As part of our end of the school year tradition the kids get to pick what the want for dinner. Normally they ask for pizza or chinese but this year they asked for Birthday Cake Pancakes which are normally only made on…you guessed it, birthdays. The kids love them and since they are really easy to make I was happy to oblige. I added chicken sausage and bacon on the side because the older 2 are more carnivore than cakeivore. What? It’s totally a thing. And by older 2 I mean Matt and Ty.

Don’t those look delicious? Did your waist just expand 2 sizes from the picture like mine did? I had the best of intentions of only eating 2 small pancakes. Well you know what they say about good intentions….actually I’m not sure what they say but I’m sure there’s a saying. Instead I found myself leaning over the sink licking the glaze frosting straight out of the bowl. I have zero willpower. Anyway, these pancakes are perfect for any special occasion….or just a Saturday.
