Am I a Bad Mother?

Posted by carol
I got a note from a loyal reader a few weeks ago asking this question that really made me laugh.

"Do you think God forgives reader-mothers who give their kids a quick and easy pasta or sandwich because we MUST FINISH a book and don't want to cook?"

For all of you looking for absolution from overlooking dinner for your reading addiction, I hereby do absolve you. I know there are many time that I not only have rushed dinner, but also have slept through the morning alarm after staying up way way too late at night reading a book.

And for all of you who are skipping a four-food group dinner the night before your book club meeting to get the book read. You are doubly absolved.

Sooooo...back to reading for all of you! Flip those pages.
