At dinner tonight Dash , our 5 year old, exclaimed, “You HAVE to make this meal for Daddy to show him what a good cook you are and how smart your brain is!!”
Let me qualify that by saying that when Mr. Incredible is out of town, as he is this weekend, we tend to lower some standards, especially around meal time. Usually we do a breakfast of scrambled eggs and pancakes for dinner. Tonight, after a rough day, even that seemed to require a Herculean effort. So I put some shredded cheese and canned black beans on taco chips and nuked them in the microwave for 30 seconds and served them up with salad in a bag from Costco.
A meal to show Daddy how great of a cook I am? Maybe not.
But I do think it shows exactly how smart my brain is!
Incidentally, if you are a melancholic perfectionist like myself, please take a moment to read this post by Mary at evlogia for some encouragement.
