Questionable holiday parenting skills

I love Thanksgiving weekend, full of good food and holiday shopping!

Today, daughter and I planned a morning of Black Friday-Saturday shopping before it got too crowded on the roads. We were running later than I wanted, so I fed the two of us an instant breakfast of leftover pumpkin pie.

I knew we'd both be hungry in an hour, which would be well into our shopping spree, and wouldn't have time to stop for food. So on the way out the door, I grabbed anything within my reach that would travel well: a bottle of water, the last 3 homemade marshmallows and half a homemade dinner roll.

I put the food on the dash of the car as we backed out of the driveway and said, "In case you get hungry."

My only saving grace was that everything was homemade -- I didn't stick a full-of-crap granola bar or pop-tart or in her face. On the flip side, we haven't eaten anything green since Thursday; I think it's time to break out the spinach tonight. But first, one more piece of pie.
