He was wearing his s’more shirt (courtesy of Grandma and J. Crew’s Crew Cuts, btw).
To say this kid is in tune with what is going on would be an understatement. I have long since believed he has had a sixth sense, but that’s a story for another time.
Today was my deadline for posting about s’mores for the gang at Hershey.
And Nick started his day with his s’mores shirt.
I hadn’t said a word previously.
Totally ‘n sync.
And not referring to the hotness that is Justin Timberlake and his old boy band.
My “surprise” topic from Hershey was to show you my “favorite s’mores face.”
I’m sure they expected pictures replete with melted chocolatey goodness.
Sticky marshmallow lips.
Graham crumbs on a cheek.
And believe me when I tell you, my kids totally have the messy eater thing covered.
As if you had any doubt.
But I decided to take it a different direction.
All those things that Hershey stands for.
To celebrate campfire, s’mores and all things Hershey, those fine folk over there in good ‘ol PA have arranged for one of YOU lucky readers to receive your very own s’mores package. Bonus!

I am forever grateful that my sister is my partner in crime when it comes to teeny bopper events. You know, places where we have no likely business attending being we are twice the average age of the rest of the audience. Oh wait, that’s just me ’cause she’s younger. When I told her I wanted to see Britney Spears, she didn’t hesitate. The last time we saw Britney together was the day I found out I was pregnant with Nick. December 2, 2001. I am horrible about dates, but that’s a random one that stuck. I had a sleeve of saltines with me that night. And no, I have no baby announcement today for you. Joe Jonas was a surprise special opener. But my sister took several modes of transportation to get to the arena so we missed him. Which was a-ok. Because we didn’t even know he was going to be there. Nicki Minaj was the formal opener. Love her. Awesome in concert. I wholeheartedly believe her current smash hit Super Bass is the perfect Summer Anthem 2011. It’s my ringtone. We sing it at full volume when we hear it. The kids’ babysitter last night knows all the words to the song. It’s goal to get them down, but man, it ain’t easy. As far as Brit Brit, she was fine in concert, but I feel like we don’t need to see her again. It was basically the same show it was ten years ago, with her new songs thrown in for good measure. And those were the best parts. Given she’s such a performer, we were a little surprised. But it still made for an awesome summer night nonetheless. Even if most of the audience were still losing their baby teeth with Britney’s first single came out.
