1. Because we can.
2. Because we need sanity.
Did you prepare for Spring Break? Did you make wonderful plans of family togetherness? My husband is off all week, so there will much family togetherness. My sweet friend Treva (of the previous post) told me yesterday that she and her daughter sat down at their dining table and figured out all kind of things they could do this week. Mapped out a plan for FUN. This made me feel like a terrible mother because I did not think of it.....thank you Mommy guilt.
BUT, I did make SOME plans. I planned food. Not meals, per se. I planned snacks so that my kids would not drive me crazy with the "but I'm hungry...what can I eat before lunch....no fruit!!!" I whipped up a batch of whole wheat blueberry muffin mix to keep in the fridge. I made granola to have on hand for munchies...do you see my pattern here? I was hoping for healthy snacks to go along with my mental picture of perfect family togetherness.
Funny that my husband also thought of food instead of fun...
He came home from church with Oatmeal Cream Pies, Captain Crunch, and Reese's Peanut butter cups. Hmmmm, I'm thinking the kids will no longer want my whole wheat blueberry muffins...
Just one more difference between men and women.
What are your Spring break plans?
