Forgive me while I gush a bit.
And give myself a firm lashing.
My 12 year old has been begging to make dinner for the last week. “Mommy, can I please make a Keto Dinner Tonight?” And always with a firm, roll of the eye, I say “Umm. . .I don’t know.” And then I go on my merry way.
Why do I say No?
I have no idea! Because I’m tired and I’m not thinking straight? Because I’m delirious and an alien has abducted the one brain cell I have left.
“Mommy, I promise I’ll clean up after myself. I’ll wash all the dishes and clean the counters.”
And still. Crickets.
But today, I stopped, and I looked at her, and I said yes. Yes. Fine. Yes. “But you better clean up! And don’t ask me to help! And don’t cry, if it doesn’t come out right!”
And so she made it. And she cleaned up. Kind of. And she didn’t cry.
But I did.
Because this meal was so incredibly amazing.
