Mommy Real

I am generally the stereotypical mom/teacher whose immune system is strong and doesn’t have time to be sick. ¬†ūüėČ ¬†Well, some crud came and hit the whole family hard this week. ¬†During the worst day for all of us, I was scheduled to take dinner to a friend, which I loved doing (no complaints). ¬†But after teaching sick kiddos all day, cooking their dinner, and delivering it, I was spent and so were they. ¬†Again, not complaining, this is just leading up to my mommy failure. ¬†It was just about six on our way home and I was debating dinner for us. ¬†My mind, nose and head were clogged and so we pulled into the grocery store where I proceeded to buy packaged sodium. ¬†For those of you who know me, this is not my style, but sometimes something has to give. ¬†And I felt extremely guilty laying down the made for kid tv dinners, as well as donuts for the next morning. ¬†But, such is life. ¬†And the kids love donuts!!! ¬†ūüôā
