It's the thought that counts... Right?

So I've been down the past few days with strep throat. Yuck. I was so sick I just wanted to go to the hospital and have them knock me out. But I didn't.



So The Girl decided she wanted to be a sweetheart and make something special for me in the kitchen. She's only 7 so instant oatmeal was a good solution. She whipped up a bowl of mixed berry flavor oatmeal and brought it to me with her face glowing with pride. Right before I took the first bite she said, "Oh, if you taste something different in there it's because I put in a special ingredient." Uh Oh. I thought it looked a little soupy but figured she'd just used too much liquid. Nope, she used Pumpkin Eggnog!! YUCK!!!! She just thought that would be the perfect finishing touch. ;-) So I choked down two bites like any good mom would and then declared that I was just too full to eat another bite. So she took it and finished the rest of the bowl. Haha!!

ROTFLMAO! THat's too funny. Amazing what concoctions kids find "delicious"! I'm sure I had a few things that made my mom roll her eyes when I was a kid.

Then again, my husband thinks some of my combos are pretty odd. :)

Oh my, you are a great mom to be able to eat as much as you did. I'm laughing at the thought but I know it couldn't have been easy since you were already bit feeling well. You'll definitely have to keep that story for the memory book to bring out when she's older. :-)

I hope you're feeling better!
