My Mom Knows What’s Up

My mom has always had 2 mottos in life: “chocolate fixes everything” and “this too shall pass.” For as long as I can remember, when I was going through a particularly rough patch in life (basically all my teenage years – who’s with me?), she’d bring me a little chocolate with a note that said “this too shall pass.”

Right about now, I’m feeling like I could use one of those surprise chocolate treats!

And I know I’m not the only one…

COVID-19 is no joke, and neither is the shelter-in-place orders. Throw in a 4-year-old who somehow managed to contract strep and a double ear infection this week (how is that even possible with a germ-a-phobe mom like me who is totally committed to social distancing??), and this mama needs a WHOLE LOTTA CHOCOLATE! Stat!
