Pumpkin Monkey Bread
I’m sort of in a weird mood tonight. Almost cranky. And, really, I’d say that I actually was cranky if I could figure out any logical explanation for my crankiness.
But I can’t. So we’ll go with feeling weird.
And maybe a little overwhelmed. That’s probably a more accurate word. Overwhelmed.
As I was sitting here, trying to decide what I wanted to write about today, all I could think of were complaints. I’m tired. I’m out of dove chocolates. I feel fat because I ate all the dove chocolates. Ugh. I have to exercise tomorrow to work off like 2 of the dove chocolates.
I wish I had more dove chocolates.
You know. Those types of things.
Which is just ridiculous. Yes, like everyone else, my life is crazy, and hectic, and overwhelming sometimes. But unlike everyone else, all of those crazy, hectic, overwhelming things are really, really, good things. And they’re things that make me happy.
So I’ve decided to hop this blog onto the November-Gratitude bandwagon and write each post this month about something I’m grateful for.
And since I’ve already spent half the post telling you why I’ve made this impromptu decision, and I don’t have much room left to tell you what I’m grateful for today, I’m going to pick something little and easy. So it won’t take up too much space :)
Today, I’m grateful for… Clorox Wipes.
My little munchkin started potty training a couple of weeks ago. And she’s doing really well. Really, she is. But we’re still having our fair share of accidents one or two days a week. It’s like some days she gets it, and some days… she just doesn’t.
Today was one of those “doesn’t” days. And twice today there were two very large pee puddles and a trail down the hallway to the bathroom.
And I was so grateful for clorox wipes.
So, so grateful.
This monkey bread is also pretty effective in wiping away (pun intended, get it?) the potty-training mommy-blues. It’s a pumpkin yeast bread, so it’s super soft and melts in your mouth when it’s warm and fresh. All ooey and gooey and drizzled in cream cheese frosting.
By the way, is it just me, or could you straight up drink cream cheese frosting out of a water bottle? Please say it’s not just me.
