I have absolutely no shame about this. I keep a stash of chocolate that I don’t share with anyone. Especially not the kids, ’cause I don’t want them to get cavities and stuff you know. Every mom needs this stash of something just for her. A stash of her favorite thing that she should eat without feeling guilty. This time I got Smarties from Dollarama.
I kept it in my coat pocket. Yesterday when I walked the girls home from school, I sneakily ate those candy coated little bits of heaven while muahahaing inside. I felt like such a rebel.
“Ha ha ha. I am eating Smarties by myself and you guys have no idea!” Evil Me said inside my head.
“Mommy are you listening to me?” Asked Twin 1.
“Of course I am honeybun.” I smiled innocently at her, Evil Me muahahad again.
If you want to keep your sanity while dealing with all the craziness involved in raising children you need to treat yourself often.
If you are married to a Desi guy you need to indulge yourself in some secret luxury everyday. While you slave over the kitchen on the weekends while he does nothing (Desi men don’t help with house work) you can secretly gloat over the fact that you didn’t wash his 10 pairs of jeans. You just threw them in the dryer with lots of fabric freshening sheets. Oh yes I did.
