Pro Tip:  When you are ready to murder your three year old because she covered your friends house in foam soap, took out 8 hundredy toys, made the baby cry, and covered the deck in pink chalk for the SECOND time . . . . start up a conversation with her about unicorns.

You guys. This summer is killing me with my three year old. (Psssst, she’ll be four in like a week, but I’m in denial she’s getting older . . . . let’s never speak of this again.)  So I am now convinced that the reason the middle child gets the bad rap is because you make their sleep like the lowest priority of any kid in the family.

I mean, oldest kid, no brainer. They get as much sleep as needs to be had because there’s no one else’s schedule to accommodate. And then the baby, well, she’s a baby, so we for sure make sure that she gets a nap every day.

But Quinn. My poor middle child, Quinn. She is staying up late with her brother, because summer. And she isn’t taking naps because she’s almost {whisper voice} four. So she’s just fundamentally not getting enough sleep.

And it is slowly becoming the death of us all.

So last week was the pinnacle of misery with her. She legit destroyed Cathy’s house with her BFF (aka one of Cathy’s two middles, Nora) by going crazy with a bottle of foam soap upstairs in one of the bedrooms. It. was. everywhere. This was Tuesday, and it was all kind of downhill from there with her getting into fight after fight after fight with her siblings . . . and if we are being honest, me.

Since then it occurred to me, like a total moron, that this kid needs more sleep. This one of the biggest #DUH moments I’ve had in a while. So things are getting a little better. She is sleeping more, we are wanting to kill her a little less.

In the midst of all of this, when I was on the verge of being the world’s meanest mommy, I started a conversation with Quinn about unicorns.

FACT:  It’s impossible to be angry while talking about unicorns.

It’s also impossible to be angry while eating this Fresh Raspberry Peach Cobbler. I’m embarrassed to admit that this is the first time I’ve made cobbler, but it will certainly not be the last! This recipe is so easy, so delicious, and it comes together kind of magically with the batter baking up all around the fruit. I adapted this recipe from a Taste of Home recipe, adding in some cinnamon and vanilla, adding in the raspberries, and making the peaches fresh. Yummy! And if you haven’t ever skinned a fresh peach using boiling and freezing water, do it. Preferably with a seven year old watching. That’s pretty magical too.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 6 fresh peaches skinned and sliced
  • 2 tsps cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar divided
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tsps vanilla extract
  • 2 tsps baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 6 oz fresh raspberries

Instructions

  • Preheat an oven to 400 degrees.
  • To skin the peaches, drop them one at a time in boiling water for 30 seconds and then in an ice bath for 10 seconds, and then just peel the skin off, slice in half, remove the pit, and slice.
  • Pour the melted butter into a 9 by 13 inch baking dish and set aside.
  • In a large saucepan, heat the sliced peaches over medium low heat for approximately 10 minutes, stirring occasionally until the peaches are soft. Mix in the cinnamon.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together 1 cup of sugar, flour, the milk, vanilla, baking powder, and salt. Pour it into the baking dish over the butter and whisk together gently.

    I love your stories. And your recipes with pretty pictures. But mostly your kid stories =)

    • Lisa Longley says

      Awww, thanks Melissa! Sometimes I wonder if anyone actually reads what I write . . . :)

        I was surprised to read the way you started this post about “murdering” your 3 year old.
        Perhaps you could re write the opening.
        Did you ever think that someone may be offended?
        I am the mother of 5 sons, only 4 are alive and are adults. Our son died during elective surgery at 22. Nicky was a twin and boy did Nicky and his brother get into everything.

        Enjoy your kids

        Not cool at all.

          Hi Ray. You sound like someone who stumbled upon my blog, maybe from Pinterest or Facebook, and you aren’t really familiar with me, my blog, my family, or my writing style. My blog is just that, a blog, it’s not just about recipes. It’s about me, its about my family, its about my mothering and it’s very very real. If you were familiar with me and my blog, you would know that I love my children more than life itself. But I write in a very honest ways. And there are some days when it is HARD to be the mom of a three year old. Additionally, if you were familiar with my blog, you would know that I am the mother of four kids, and only three are living. I also lost my son during surgery.

          Judging someone’s mothering without knowing them: Not cool at all.

        • Lisa Longley says

          Ray, I want to apologize. I’m a feisty little Italian, and I let my anger and my grief cloud my judgement and I responded to you too quickly and without compassion. Let me try again.

          First, I’m so sorry for your loss. The loss of Nicky, the loss of watching Nicky with this twin brother, and the loss of having your family in tact. And all the little and big losses that someone on the outside can’t even comprehend. Burying your child is never okay. You never get over the loss. You just learn to carry on.

          Second, I’m sorry if you were offended. The intent of my words was never to offend anyone, but to speak honestly about how difficult it is at times to be the mom of a three year old. I’m sure you remember three. Three is one of those times when you just want to pull your hair out daily, you know? That said, I love my daughter. Obviously. And I remember that even in the moments when I want to ring her neck and sell her to the circus. And that’s why I make the choice to talk about unicorns instead of yelling at her.

          Finally, this club, this club of mothers who have lost children is one that doesn’t want to accept new members but should be extraordinarily kind to those who are in it. In the future I will do my best to put my own grief stricken heart broken feelings aside and be kind.

          I wish you well, Ray. I wish you peace.

    Hmmm, any magical topics for 3 (almost 4) year old boys? If you have any ideas, please share (as I too often feel the urge to murder) Lol! This cobbler looks amazing!!

    • Lisa Longley says

      Poop. I wish I was joking. :)

  3. Mir says

    Poor middle kids! They always get the shaft, somehow. Mine always gives up her toys to accommodate the her siblings to avoid them from fighting. It’s sweet, but I get worried.
    Hope Quinn gets the rest she needs. School will start soon, and then things will get back to normal!
    This cobbler looks amazing. Its your source of energy when you’re dealing with a tired kid!

    • Lisa Longley says

      They totally do! And they are really good about smoothing things over . . . most of the time :)

  4. Dorothy @ Crazy for Crust says

    If I’m being totally honest one of the reasons (besides, well, the obvious) I didn’t have another was because of sleep. Mine and hers – I saw how babies messed with schedules and I knew I wouldn’t be able to handle it. I can’t believe she’s almost 4!!!!

    • Lisa Longley says

      Don’t talk about four Dorothy!!! ;)

  5. Joan Hayes says

    This cobbler looks amazing! I adore peaches and raspberries together! And I’m sorry your little one is boycotting naps, hopefully it’s just a little phase!

  6. Melissa says

    Lisa, I have an uncle with a farm in Wyoming where everybody in our family sends their sleep-deprived, delinquent children. I can see if he is accepting three-year-olds :) In the meantime, brilliant tip to talk about unicorns. I have a seven-year-old who has all the sudden become so not pleasant, but she does love unicorns, so I will definitely give that parenting strategy a try :) And also this peach raspberry cobbler, because how could this not be delicious?

    • Lisa Longley says

      OMG. Can I send some kids to the farm???

  7. angie says

    I just made this, and it looks amazing! I was wondering what do you do with left overs? Does it need to be refrigerated? Thanks for sharing your stories, and recipes! I’m a mother of 3 the struggle is real!

    • Lisa Longley says

      Hi Angie! I would definitely refrigerate the leftovers. And thank you for your kind words. The struggle IS real, and I appreciate you saying so :)

  8. Valarie says

    Can you make this ahead of time a refrigerate until cooking?

    • Lisa Longley says

      I think that would work okay, but I would have it sit out a little before you pop it in the oven.
