A Simple and Delicious Dessert

Strawberry Parfait with Homemade Chocolate Pudding

I can’t believe it’s already Valentine’s!  I feel like Christmas was just last week– this year is just flying by!  So I was listening to the radio this morning taking Little Man to preschool and the DJs were talking about WHY time seems to go faster the older we get….and it makes a lot of sense.

Apparently some college did a study and found that the reason children experience time differently than adults is because everything they experience is new and they are in awe.  As adults we don’t experience as much new stuff and are basically on auto-pilot all of the time.

Another study said adults experience time as a much shorter duration because it’s a smaller percentage of our life so far.  So, a year in a 4 year old’s life is 25% of their life so it seems sooooooooo long….where as a year in 20 year old’s life is just 5% and it just gets smaller from there.

What do you think?

Anyway, on to the deliciousness you’re here for…..this Strawberry S’mores Parfait with Homemade Chocolate Pudding is a perfect Valentine treat.  Well, let’s be honest….it’s the perfect ANYTIME treat!  The homemade chocolate pudding recipe is AMAZING!  You’ve got to try it– and it’s a super easy recipe…perfect for dessert!
