It's been a little crazy here lately.

My brother has been living with us this summer and is getting married next week. I'm not really involved in all the wedding planning stuff but household stress is running a little high, nonetheless (I think that might be the first time I've ever used that expression- nonetheless. is it one word? it just sounded cool). My sister and I are planning a bridal shower for our new sister in law to be held here next week, the house needs to be scoured, I've been making the happy couple a quilt, I need to get started on an apron I'm making for her, I've got all the normal kid craziness and ... well, that's the major stuff.

Last night for dinner my little buddy had cantelope, peas and cookies.
My little girlie had milk and cookies.

Don't judge me too harshly. They had other options. Hubbie and I had all that plus crockpot BBQ spareribs and mashed potatoes.
There is just too much craziness going on lately to worry about balanced nutrition for every meal.

And besides, they were oatmeal cookies.

Oatmeal cookies count as health food. Did you put rasins in them? That's a fruit. At least your little guy had veggies and fruit too!

Oatmeal cookies and milk count...I've had them for dinner AND breakfast before! Good luck with everything!

Well, if youre gonna offer up cookies to your kids for dinner, oatmeal cookies have to be the most nutritious cookie that I know of! Also, I think this gesture indicates there is one tired mamma in the house! Hope your next week is peaceful and productive!
