A few weeks ago my daughter and I went out on a shopping “date”. We try to go out every couple months just the two of us. The plan is that she can stop at any store she wants and we usually get some sort of coffee drink for our shopping energy. Now on these “dates” I am not allowed to go to the stores that I normally would go into.
This means no Old Navy, no Maurices, no American Eagle…basically no clothing stores except for Justice. And that clothing store is the only one allowed because she loves their clothes. Me…I don’t love their prices that much, so I have to limit her to the clearance racks and maybe a nail polish.
We had a blast going through the racks and even found her a few tops and nail polish without breaking the bank.
She even let me walk into Maurices…notice I said walk. There was no stopping or even trying on of clothes! But that is ok because the date is all about her anyway:-)
After an hour or so of kid shopping, we headed home. Our van was outside of Kohl’s, so we were cutting through the store to get there when…I kind of wandered off the path toward some racks. Those clothes were telling me to come see them:-) It was clearance after all!!!!
My daughter followed behind me, grabbed my arm and said, “Mom, you were doing so good.” Mind you she was shaking her head in disbelief as she said this. I just had to laugh at her because it was so cute how she said it.
These muffins might make you shake your head and say, “I was doing so good.” Why? Because they will cry out to you and ask to be eaten.
How do I know this?
Because I might have had a few talk to me after I made them twice:-) Yes, I was doing so good. Until, those muffins called me out. I couldn’t resist the call. It would have been rude:-) (And yes, food talks to me more than is probably normal:-) So you better listen and make some muffins for breakfast. You know they are talking to you too;-)
