I was never a straight A student in school…from junior high all the way until my senior year of high school, my grades mostly consisted of B’s, C’s, and a couple of D’s.  

I was painfully shy and in my mind, suffered from what we know now as social anxiety disorder.  Except I like to call it, school anxiety disorder.

There was just something about being in a room full of my fellow students that just made me very nervous.  Even if my closest friends were in the class, I still felt anxious.

I was always worried that if I blurted out the wrong answer in class or if I had a booger sticking out of my nose, everyone would poke fun at me.

Which, let’s face it, they probably would have….because children, tweens, and teens can be very mean.  I spent the majority of my educational years locked up in a silent bubble.

It wasn’t until I went to college when I learned that it was ok to be myself and that it was ok to blurt out the wrong answer in class.  I like to consider my college years as actually being the best educational years of my life.

I am trying very hard to make sure my children do not follow in my foot steps.  I reiterate to my daughter over and over that it really is ‘ok’ to ask the teacher for help…and that you should raise your hand if you have a question.

Chances are, someone else may be wondering the same thing but just may be afraid to ask, like I was all those years ago.

I hope they take my advice to heart and realize that mommy does know a thing or two about life 😉

Aren’t these acorns cute?! Truth be known, they’ve been circling Pinterest for a few years, which is where I found them.

Mini chocolate chips, Nutter Butters, and chocolate kisses are all you need to make these cute Peanut Butter Chocolate Acorns. Kids of all ages will have fun creating them!

I was in a ‘fall’ mood yesterday and decided to put them together.

These are super easy and super fast (or like my kids like to say…speedy quick) to make that I actually caught Ava (my 8 year old) putting some together for her friends while I was doing the photo shoot above.

They only require 3 ingredients too!  That’s it!  I have no clue why I’ve waited till now to make them.

Libby's Notes

If you have a child or know someone who is allergic to peanut butter, use mini vanilla wafers or mini Ritz crackers instead of Nutter Butters.
