I have found the limit of my motherly "self-sacrifice."
Monday, July 5, 2010

Like most moms, I give the best of the food servings to my kids.

I take the burned chicken. I take the bruised apple. I take the broken cookie. I have witnessed this phenomenon in other moms, so I know it's universal.

However, there is a limit to my altruism.

The biggest, gooiest, cinnamon roll with the most icing - that baby goes on mama's plate! Every time.

This post inspired by a delightful morning of cinnamon rolls and freshly squeezed orange juice, enjoyed outside in lawn chairs on a beautiful summer morning.

To paraphrase a comment left on my blog: "I wish I lived next door to you. I would find all kinds of creative reasons to show up at your door at BREAKFAST time."

Yes, you are right it is universal.

I spent the weekend at my parents' house and my two sister-in-laws (Amy and Ronnin) mentioned Starr who lives in Lubbock and Amy mentioned your blog. I asked is her blog Lost in Laundry? Amy and Ronnin told me how they both know you. Ronnin said you were one of a few friends she had in Dallas and that she spent a lot of time with you and did a bible study with you.

I know that I did come across your blog from Amy's, now I know the connection.
