This week. . .
I cut my dogs nails and then they bled like Mt. Saint Helens erupting for the first time.
I yelled at my husband for being sick.
And. . .
I told my family I didn’t know what was for dinner, and that I was going to sleep. At 7 pm, when they were LITERALLY starving. And . . . there was no food in the house.
Being a mom is hard.
And if I’m being honest, nobody gives me a pat on the back quite like I’d like them too.
Except my mom.
And that’s probably because nobody pats her on the back either.
So, when I feel like I need a pat on the back, I make these muffins.
Because , well. . . they are easy, and my family scarfs them down so quickly that no words need be spoken.
Their actions say it all.
I am a HERO.
An absolute marvel because I made a warm and delicious all-American pastry FOR THEM. . . in the wee hours of the morning.
Even though it only took 18 minutes.
They don’t need to know that.
