There is something I had completely forgotten about having a newborn. With all the things going on in my household, there are days and times when what mama needs gets pushed to the back burner or simply doesn’t happen at all. The other day I realized on my way out the door at 11:45 that I hadn’t eaten anything all day! I hadn’t felt hungry; between diaper changes, bottles, breakfast for big kids it slipped my mind. This is unheard of for me! I love food and I love to eat and it is not often I skip a meal, let alone forget.
If only I could forget about the peanut butter ice cream my hubby brought home the other night, or the Oreos he just munched on. I’m so jealous of the fact that he can have an entire package of cookies and eat 2 or 3 whereas me on the other hand, I’ll eat every last one.
I just need to get used to the idea again that there are going to be things in our household that I say no to. It’s not like my house is full of junk food all the time, but I do have a 6 year old, a 3 year old and a husband who walks 6 miles a day at his job and doesn’t gain 8 pounds by smelling chocolate. I’ve done it before I can do it again, but why does the junk have to taste so good?
