Ever have one of those mornings? The type where everything that could possibly go wrong does? And all you really want to do is throw a full-blown mommy tantrum but you can’t because…well…you’re mommy and what kind of example would that be setting for the children?
So you woke up late, the dog left “little gifts” throughout the house for you to clean up before you even take your first sip of coffee, you have a flat tire, an unexpected road block during school drop off, you handle each challenge with dignity and manage to restrain the mommy tantrum brewing from within. But there is a breaking point…a small little something that really make that mommy tantrum tea-pot whistle…that no mom can escape…MOMMY GUILT!
Webster defines Guilt as….
1: the fact of having committed a breach of conduct especially violating law and involving a penalty; broadly: guilty conduct
2a : the state of one who has committed an offense especially consciously
Thus when I allow my kiddos too much screen time, fail to make a hot healthy breakfast in the morning, or take time out for me, I am committing an offense!?? Well that’s the way it feels at times, right!?? But who can blame us, society has sent subliminal messages that the modern mom should be a pleasant combination of Mrs. Clever (in our culinary and household responsibilities), Mrs. Huxtable, Mrs. Keaton, Mrs. Seaver, or insert practically any 80’s mom character (with regard to balancing family and career), and a size zero (insert essentially every mother on a sitcom these days!!! Come on!). But guess what?
McDonald has somehow found a way to tame all these pseudo-mommy expectations within us…at least when it comes to breakfast. You can kiss that morning mommy guilt goodbye!
McDonald’s is now offering customers in Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan an Egg White Delight McMuffin! It is prepared with freshly grilled 100% egg whites, extra lean Canadian bacon, and white cheddar served on a muffin that delivers 8 grams of whole grains.
I took footage of me and the kiddos trying them for the first time…..
