I looked at the kids. They blinked back at me. The day was about to go you know where in a hand basket, and I was about to let it.
And then... I put the chicken back in the fridge. I said a silent farewell to my pre-beach diet. I got out the pancake mix and the griddle. I plopped a bottle of maple syrup in front of the kids.
Hey Sam, guess what's for dinner?
Did ya hear that, Max & Chlo?
And, just like that, Mommy became a hero.
When life gives you lemons... make pancakes.
