Today I am thankful...

Today I am thankful for M&M's. No seriously. You are thinking um Kerri it's the week before Thanksgiving and you are supposed to give thanks for all the blessings in your life. But I am doing that next week, for a special reason. 

Yet I am totally thankful for M&M's. First they are the breakfast of champions. Okay, not champions but mine. They get me through the work day. On a boring conference call? Pop some M&M's believe me you will feel better. Abby even ratted me out to the school nutritionist:

My mom NEVER eats breakfast or lunch. Sometimes she has popcorn for dinner. But she made me eat shepherd's pie last night while she didn't eat at all. Do you know how gross shepherd's pie is?

Here's the thing, kiddo. As your mom it is not my job to eat healthy. It is my job to make sure you do.

Finish the Sentence Friday


  1. LOL, I love this! I don't love M&Ms, but... more for you! ;)

  2. Lol, seriously too cute and I know it is truly so much easier to make sure they eat healthy versus us. I got yelled at by my doctor that I actually needed to put on a few pounds at my last appointment and then it dawned on me, when do I have time to eat a full meal with two kids 16 months apart!! Seriously though, M&M's are the best!! :)

  3. Hahaha this reminds me of my mom! She often has a giant bag of M&Ms in the pantry for those stressful days, and they work like a charm. ;-)

    And I fully support you in your decision to eat popcorn for dinner...popcorn is the besttt!!

  4. I love shepherd's pie! And M&M's, but only the peanut ones.

  5. And you worry about parenting a teenager? You have got this down, Kerri!


Thanks for stopping by and letting me know what you think!
