Parenthood routinely puts me in my place. Any time I think I’ve got things under control, the kids show me otherwise. I plan a fun-filled weekend for the kids and it is, as planned, super fun. But then the next morning they have a fun hangover and are doing their best Incredible Sulk aaallll day. In an attempt to keep them occupied, we decide to bake some apple muffins which is also awesome because it covers breakfast for the week. Double win! And then the little one has a random accident on the stairs despite being potty trained for a pretty long time now. Yeeeaaahhh. Some or all of these things may have happened over the weekend. Tip of the iceberg.
I was happy to have these muffins around as a late afternoon snack, especially after completely forgetting lunch. They taste more like an apple doughnut or an apple fritter but they are whole grain and not as indulgent as they seem. A nice little consolation while waiting to see where things will go next.
