As I wiped off the counter tonight--with the smell of freshly baked "cookies" in the air, lunches made, homework done, and dinner in the oven--I couldn't help but feel so accomplished.
And then I had a reality check, because it was frozen pizza (with cheese that fell to the bottom of the oven and almost set the smoke alarm off) that was cold before Adam even made it home, and I had already had one huge #momfail of the day: I didn't make it to the bus stop in time from work so Aidan and Logan were upset and had to ride around for an extra 25 minutes until the end of the normal route (on the plus side, at least the bus driver doesn't leave them to roam the neighborhood by themselves...).
Clearly I'm in no danger of setting the bar too high for myself anytime soon. Oh well, at least I can console myself with relatively guilt-free banana oatmeal "cookies."
PS: It's just 3 really ripe bananas smushed up and mixed with a cup-ish of quick cook oats, a bit of cinnamon and some chocolate chips. Bake for 15 min at 350. Or just eat the batter, because it's almost better than the finished product.
