So, I know most of you probably come here to be inspired by my Amazing Mom Powers. You are encouraged by the fact that I have it all together. You are probably hoping that just by hanging out here with me you will become Super Mom too.
Well, my friends, I have to confess…I’m not [quite] perfect.
So, I toasted the waffles and poured on the syrup. I squeezed the bottle a bit due to the thick consistency of the syrup. Much to my surprise syrup poured out of the container leaving suspicious Syrup Spatter on the kitchen walls and counters.
How did the syrup get so runny?
If you are an especially keen observer you might notice that I poured a large amount of soy sauce on my son’s waffles.
And the counter.
And the wall.
In my defense…
The containers look very similar.
Especially if you get by on 12 minutes of sleep a night.
You might remember that grace in our house right now (this summer) looks like a lot of outings, convenience foods and time spent swimming. While shopping last week I grabbed a rare treat…
I poured some for Apollo for breakfast and took a sip. It tasted different than what I remembered. It was somehow richer and sweeter. Oh well, I wasn’t planning to drink it anyway…
Avi had some and when Jubilee came in for breakfast I told her to help herself to some chocolate milk. She walked over to the fridge and then came back saying…
“Um, mom…? Why did you buy chocolate ice cream mix?”
What in the world was she talking about?
Oh, just this.
Her face says it all….but to be fair… this looks like a carton of chocolate milk, does it not? Especially if you chose to ignore the ice cream cones on the front of the container…
So there you have it.
This is my life, my friends.
Now can I interest anyone in a cup of Soft Serve Mix?
