Being a mom I thought somethings would never come out of my mouth. I have learned to stop underestimating the things I do, say and think.
Today I had one of those I-did-not-just-do-that. Momments.
Long line in the checkout area…..Costco. I am there innocently feeding my children some instant oatmeal (I had mistaken it for the easy mac’n cheese sample lady.)
Then it happened. Really fast acctually. I went to put a heaping spoonful into the Fishes mouth…….. rejected……
SCOOP and I ate it!!!!!
My body was on complete auto pilot. Instantly a huge smile comes over my face which started to burn bright scarlet. I am "THAT" mom. I just turned into that mom that eats off the face of her children. The ancient voices of the past come into my head "Well you couldn’t let good oatmeal go to waste now could you?" My smile broadens and I chuckle to myself. And I quickly scan the crowded checkout area. Only to meet the gaze of a 25ish young man buying grilling supplies and beer. He is laughing and smiling to himself.
I say out loud to him. "Only Mom’s can do that!" He nodds and turns to dry heave (I am sure.) I swore to myself I would NEVER and now I can say that I have. I would like to publicly appologize to myself and my selfesteme. You are so fragile and delicate at this time I never meant harm you. Hopefully it isn’t permenant.
