This easy no bake cheesecake recipe is quick and easy to make, with only 4 ingredients! This is one of the best cheesecake recipes I have found.
Parenting is such a bear sometimes, isn’t it? I mean, you just never know what kind of problem you’ll be dealing with until it slaps you in the face.
Then, just as soon as you start getting the hang of how to deal with some of these common issues, the kids up and grow, and bring you a whole new batch of issues. And here I am, pining away for the diaper days.
I remember when my son was 4 years old, and one of our “big” issues was his proclivity for nudity, which always came in unexpected moments. I would leave him for 5 minutes, and come back to find him naked. I solved this problem by having a quick and quiet little chat about how great nudity is, and how it’s only appropriate in certain places, namely the bathroom and the bedroom. With the door closed.
I then game him a little alone time in his bedroom, and he decided to stay naked for over THREE HOURS.
The payoff was well worth the investment.
Having teenagers is far more complicated. Now we’re getting them prepared for driving (yikes!) and dealing with teachers and grades, and working on financial responsibility, and self-discipline around video games, just to name a few. Every day is a new challenge, and one I frequently feel unprepared for.
I hate feeling unprepared. I much prefer to plan ahead.
I learned a lesson from this cheesecake. If I keep a few items on hand, I can always have a quick and easy dessert, no matter how unprepared I feel. Having just a little foresight can save you a ton of worry and stress.
I try to keep just THREE ingredients plus a graham cracker crust on hand, and I can literally mix this up and have it ready to eat in 15 minutes.
Because when you are using every bit of your energy and emotion to get your kids through high school Biology, a no-fuss dessert is a Godsend.
