Pepperidge Farm® Milano® Cookies are the perfect way to take time out and enjoy a moment to yourself!
Do you ever feel like you just need a moment……? It’s a feeling I have often as a stay-at-home mom. Never in a million years did I think a moment to myself would be so hard to find…..but when you factor in four kids, I guess it makes sense! Four kids to take care of, spend time with, think about, worry about, comfort, snuggle. At the end of the day, it’s no wonder I feel like I have no time to myself!
Of course, there are moments, even with all the kids at home, when things feel peaceful. When Greta is reading to Nora or Ellia is corralling all the little ones to play school or somehow, miraculously, Myla is sleeping and the others are all busy drawing and coloring. And in those moments, I can usually accomplish a thing or two, like laundry or dishes or picking up toys. And in those moments, all is good!
But typically, those moments only last for a short time, and typically, they don’t end well. And then it’s back to settling arguments and dealing with tantrums and helping with homework and listening to friendship issues and acting as playmate…..all while getting dinner started and trying to take care of a few blog-related tasks and remembering to RSVP for a birthday party……the list goes on. And it’s somewhere in the midst of this chaotic scene that I find myself longing for just a tiny moment……all to myself.
A moment to take my thoughts away from all the people I need to take care of and all the things I need to get done and all the feelings I have about whether or not I’m doing those things well. At the end of the day, I really do believe we’re all doing the best we can! And sometimes…..we just need a moment to pause and enjoy the journey. So I’m trying to get better at taking the small moments when I need them, and filling them with the simple pleasures I love! A cup of coffee. A journal. A cookbook. A sweet treat. Like a Milano cookie.
There’s just something about a Milano that feels special. Simple. Elegant. Exactly what I’m looking for in a moment that’s just for me. A Milano moment. It’s a beautiful thing!
So tell me…..what would your “moment” look like?
