Mornings around our house are usually mass chaos. No matter what I do to try to be organized the night before, mornings don’t seem to change.
In fact, we have a little celebration in the car on the way to school on those rare days where I didn’t have to turn into “raging maniac mom” to get everyone in gear. I’ll say, those little celebrations don’t happen too often. That’s not something I’m necessarily proud of.
So, would you judge me if I told you that sometimes to ease my guilt for yelling, I let my kids have cookies for breakfast? OK, there has been a time or two where those cookies were Girl Scout Cookies, but for the most part, cookies for breakfast around our house consist of the oatmeal banana breakfast variety. I love these cookies because they are easy to make and they are fairly nutritious. When raging maniac mom spends her morning, ahem,
yelling using her outside voice, inside, saying yes to cookies for breakfast seems to erase all that.
Say yes to cookies for breakfast and bring joy back to your mornings…for a moment, anyway.
