THIS MORNING MY DAUGHTER REQUESTED BLUEBERRY MUFFINS!

I asked my daughter what she wanted for breakfast in the morning last night before bed.   She said, “I don’t know mom.”  I was starting to feel bad because it feels like I make the same things over and over out of convenience.  It was obvious she was starting to get bored. At 3 a.m. she woke me up and said, “Mommy, since we moved in April you haven’t made blueberry muffins.”

Guilt set in.  She was right, I hadn’t. In fact, I hadn’t even thought about them. I tucked her back in and told her blueberry muffins were a great idea. It only takes 33 mins from start to finish and I always keep frozen blueberries in the freezer! My goal is she always eats fruit at breakfast so BAM no more thinking for me. I got up in the morning and made them.  Happy Baby, Happier Mommy! She ate 3 of them and was full!
