Every once in a while I think I am really getting the swing of this parenting thing. I feel like one of those confident moms who has the alphabetized diaper bag or can recite the Ferber Method like it's the Koran. Most of the time I am counting ears, shoes, socks and look for keys frantically before I leave the house. Aaah, the working mother dream.
However, every once in a while though I step up my game a bit and impress myself. This happened on Sunday when I was putting a snack together for a long car ride- instead of opting for the easier "apple" or "animal crackers" I decided to make a nice protein balanced, fruit, granola, sunflower seed medley. Awesome right? At the last minute I threw in a few chocolate chips to balance the dried cranberries. F'ing gourmet, right?
Mother. Of. The. Year.

Once again I remind myself that I am not Martha for a reason. A very good reason, I'm not good at it. One new shirt later I remind myself to aim low-- less expectations that way.
Live and learn.
