Things that happened before 11am:
I told myself I’m going to pretend they’re not fighting and acting like animals.
One kid got into my makeup.
I broke my finger, don’t ask (but score, for it being the first time ever breaking a bone). Then Rhys said to me, “I forgive you for breaking your finger”. Oh, the irony.
I didn’t have time to have my morning coffee, and I read a text message incorrectly and went to meet the girls for lunch…a day early!!!
Two of my boys fell into mud and they smelled terrible.
I’m still scrambling around to find a sitter for tonight’s date night.
I’m pretty sure they banded together to make sure they break me today.
But, I did manage to eat a quick, satisfying breakfast before I hit the road this morning. Del Monte® has a line of fruit snacks for adults that are a godsend to all moms! Quick, easy, and tasty. Today, while my little one was busying himself in my makeup, apparently, I enjoyed a Del Monte® Fruit & Oats™ cup at home—it’s the first ready-to-eat oatmeal with one full serving of fruit*! It can be warmed up but is also pretty good eaten cold (like I did this morning). There are three delicious flavors: Pear Maple, Peach Cinnamon Spice, and good ol’ Apple Cinnamon. Love that I don’t have to whip out any pots, but I can still have all the goodness and flavor of oats that taste just like how mom used to make ‘em.
Who loves a good on-the-go snack like I do? My latest favorite mom hack is the Del Monte® Fruit Refreshers®. It’s conveniently packaged and would be great to take along during your day spent chauffeuring your kids around like it’s your job. Oh wait… At under 100 calories, these tasty fruit cups are basically the grown-up version of the fruit cups you used to love as a child—except with no artificial flavors or sweeteners. What’s your favorite refreshing flavor? Mine’s the Pineapple in Passion Fruit, hands down!
Don’t forget to try Del Monte® Fruit & Chia™ cups, too. Chia is a superfood, and it’s all the rage amongst hipster moms, but I’m just loving the tropical fruity flavors that take me back to the days of summer. The extra fiber, vitamin C and omega-3s don’t hurt 😉 If you’re so inclined to share your goodies with your little monsters (kidding), all of the Del Monte products come in a 2-pack and you can find them in the fruit cup aisle at your local retailer. Try it and save $0.75 on a one-pack of Del Monte Fruit & Oats Cups here, you’ll thank me later!
