Momma has her groove back!
Our daughter, now known as “Typhoid Mary” brought the influenza home from middle school. That’s right, our home which includes two children under the age of two, was stricken by the influenza. One of whom is three weeks old.
Oh. My. Word.
Picture solitary confinement and bowls of chicken and stars soup placed outside of bedroom doors. Imagine a stockpiling of flu masks and lysol and hands totally chapped from constant exposure to rubbing alcohol based sanitizer.
Think of an Ellis Island style quarantine of all sick and non-sick members of the Supper clan to confirm illness was not spread.
What a week, man.
Fast forward to the final night of quarantine- after spending an evening testing my smizing skills over the top of a flu mask, which incidentally are so terrible that instead of feeling the warmth of my smiling gaze and being inexplicably drawn in, my husband asked why I was staring at him like a crazy person and told me to take a nap.
Anyhoo. Following the smizing disaster and right before another humid night of trying to sleep with a flu mask, I knew that come mo.
Nothing says “party” like food served in mason jars.
Crunchy, slightly sweet granola can only be enjoyed by those who can, again, taste food.
Chia yogurt is something I feel so darn good about feeding my kids.
And strawberries. EVERYONE LOVES THOSE! Babies can’t even keep their hands off of them!
This is like a breakfast blue ribbon plus party time celebration of the return of family togetherness and hugs and breathing of non-contaminated air.
And… you guys, it feels real good!
