What IS a bon bon anyway?

In the Northern Hemisphere schools will soon be letting the kids out to set up their sprinklers and make mudpuddles of backyards everywhere.

So we work-at-home moms will have to get up off our collective buttocks, put down the bon bons, turn off the soap operas and shuttle kids here and there to the zoo, swimming lessons and T-ball games.

Life is rough, isn't it?

Of course, we'll still have to find a way to continue to meet our deadlines and put in the extra hours of housework required when the pitter-patter of little feet and the slamming of the screen door is are nearly constant sounds.

But that's okay. We're used to juggling. And I think what I am going to do is live up to everyone's idea of work at home moms: I'm going to spend lots of time at the pool and the park and maybe, just maybe, sneak a bon bon once in a while.

I have to figure out for sure what they are, though. I assume they're things like chocolate covered cherries? MMM. Sign me up.

THIS is what I recognise as Bon Bons.

Those look good but where's the chocolate? I think if I'm going to eat bon bons all day, they should at least be chocolate! :D
