Sometimes I forget I'm a Beta mom.
Sometimes I have delusions of grandeur and become totally convinced that I can do everything and be everywhere.
Sometimes I forget to give myself permission to let good enough be good enough.
And there's where things go wrong. Very, very wrong.
Sometimes when I'm working all day and then picking up my kids and grocery shopping and getting a husband and a son ready for an opening night production and making a salad for the kindergarten pot luck that we will all go to before the opening night production and baking a batch of cookies and a batch of lemon squares for a bake sale and trying to shower because I didn't have time that morning...
well, sometimes, when all that is happening, I get confused.
And instead of putting one egg in the cookies and three eggs in the lemon squares like the recipe calls for, I put THREE eggs in the cookies. And I end up with cookie dough that looks like pancake batter.
So rather than admit defeat, I add flour to the cookies to thicken the consistency.
Worried that I've created cake-like cookies with no taste, I throw chocolate chips in the batter.
Worried that my monstrosities won't sell, while all the OTHER moms' perfectly baked cookies will fly off the table, I search for something, anything, to add to their appeal.
In a panic, I grab some Hershey kisses. (I've seen that done, right? People put kisses on cookies, right? People will be dying for these awesome awesome chocolate cookies, right?)
I pull the giant, cake-like, lumpy cookies from the oven, slap on the Hershey kisses and stand back to admire my handiwork.
This is what I ended up with:
Can't quite place it?
