Some reasons why moms* rock:
They are proud of everything you accomplish, no matter how small or insignificant it may seem to you.
They can heal boo-boos with a single kiss and hug.
When you’re sick, nothing tastes better than the chicken soup they make. Even if it came from a Campbell’s soup can.
They usually do know best.
So we celebrated my brother’s birthday this past Tuesday at our house. My parents were supposed to bring dinner and I decided to make him this Double Chocolate Chip Loaf Cake. I already had all the ingredients I needed in my fridge and pantry (well, except for the sour cream; I substituted vanilla yogurt for that) and it seemed relatively easy since all the ingredients get mixed in the food processor. I even had some leftover salted caramel sauce that I was planning on drizzling over the top of it.
All my life I had always avoided exercising and working out. Although I knew that the health benefits were great, I had neither the motivation nor the desire to do it. Organized sports? Ha, yeah right. The only running I might have done would probably have been because I was trying to catch up with the ice cream man.
