Quote Of The Day

"I had to eat all of them. There were only five cookies left and I didn't want one of the kids to feel left out. Honestly, I did it for them. The kids are worth the slightly nauseous feeling I have right now."

Said by me after my husband asked what happened to the five large cookies that he had last seen on the kitchen counter.

This is the same reason I still lick the beaters when I make a cake, brownies, etc. Two beaters --- I have three kids. Who wants that kind of discord? It's a small sacrifice for me to make. :)

The sacrifices a mother is called upon to make are many and varied.

You only did what any good mother would do. We have to make these sacrifices every now and then. You deserve an award, really. I know, some milk??

I like it! I think I've used similar logic. It reminds of what my wife says when she comes back from the mall with bags of new clothes, "It said SALE in the window." That's like the sirens in Greek mythology. It just draws her in without a choice...

No one appreciates the sacrifices a mother makes.

Thank Goodness I can pass up cookies. Now... if it were white cake batter? I'd be hiding behind a bathroom door with the bowl and a spoon!!! (Not sharing... hee hee).

yes, and you not only were looking out for the children, but your husband, too!

You know, when I read the very first line, I thought for the briefest second that you were referring to the children themselves. ;)
