If You Give a Mom a Muffin :)
This chilly October morning I bundled up my 10-month-old, Yonatan, in long pants, a long-sleeved shirt, and a warm sweatshirt. But I looked through his drawers and couldn’t find any socks for him.
So right after I dropped off Tsofia at gan I went with Yonatan over to the grocery store thinking maybe they sell socks.
But on my way to the accessories aisle, I saw beans. I needed beans big time for my Shabbat lunch enchilada surprise (shhh, don’t tell Josh!)
Which reminded me I needed grated cheese to put on top, and crushed tomatoes.
And what about dessert? Last week I forgot to get dessert, and it wasn’t pretty. A package of icecream for only 17 sheks!
Nougat-flavored bamba, fire-hot doritos, pringles, sugar-free wafers for eema.
And of course, an industrial-sized package of Shabbat toilet paper.
B”H, there was nobody else at the cashier and she started going through my stuff, but then I realized I’d forgotten something.
I ran back to the sauce area across from the meat counter, found the salsa, and ran back to the cashier, and she rang up my bill.
I stuffed my two bags under the stroller and as I walked out the door and balanced the Shabbat toilet paper on top, I was feeling awfully efficient– only 9:40 in the morning and I was already on my way back home with my groceries.
And then I smiled down at Yonatan, with his long pants, long shirt, sweatshirt and cold bare feet…
