Nothing like fudge brownies from a box!

Small Successes / Thursday, May 12th, 2011

1. Made brownies and brought this for snack for my daughter’s after-school activity today.

2. Made said brownies from a box (gasp!!). This is a small success b/c it signifies how I’ve grown to let go of perfection when it comes to only making/sharing food that is 100% healthy all the time. I’m not sure why I ever aspired to that in the first place. Silly me.

3. Pulled out some of the weeds that have taken over the front garden. (thanks to some extra help from my super-sweet goddaughter!)

  1. Congrats! I soooo hear you on the food thing. I once was appalled by the thought of using things like boxed cake mix or cinamon rolls from a tube. And although I still PREFER my homemade creations, there is something to be said for the lack of stress that comes from a quick-fix like these. So, for every once in a while. . . and, if I let my baby eat dirt to build his immune system, can this really be all that different? šŸ™‚

    1. Mary-yes I definitely would PREFER that too but I’m trying not to wallow in self-imposed guilt when I can’t quite reach the PREFERED level. And yes, on the dirt, I hear bugs are a good source of protein too! šŸ˜‰

  2. Thank you for being part of Small Success Thursday! It’s so important to celebrate the little victories that are quite literally what all the big moments are built from so thanks for being a part of this internet story of Moms quietly helping to create hearths and homes and mold hearts. Hope to see you next week.
