Mother of the Year Goes to.... Not Me

Every morning I go to the gym to exercise. I love it because I have a lot of friends there (it's my adult interaction for the day...hahah...but seriously...), endorphins are released, I feel powerful and strong....etc. Fast forward to about 10 minutes after I arrive home.

Kids are fighting over who grabbed the box of cereal first.

Tears are rolling down cheeks from, "Cameron looked at me in a mean way."

Actually, I got paid. What's better than getting paid to shop? Doing this has definitely helped alleviate costs for our family. and I feel good that I'm doing my part, too--even if I am a stay-at-home mom. ;)
