Chick-fil-A Gave Me Mom Guilt
So, if you know me then you know how much I love Chick-fil-A. You also know by now that I have a lot of kids. Three total, but still a lot. Well, because of my love for Chick-fil-A, I've racked up a crap ton of points and freebies through their app.
Today I wanted a sweet tea (I'm trying to cut back on the Dr Pepper - the struggle is real), and I had enough points to get a free one. Well, apparently Chick-fil-A is giving away an 8 count of nuggets through their app for the entire month of January. So of course, my greedy ass thought to myself "I need that."
I get through the drive thru and it was like once she handed me the bag of those chicken nuggets, I could smell the mom guilt. Here I am getting Chick-fil-A while my kids are stuck eating school food. Let's face it, school food these days isn't like what we had in the 90's. It ain't good. 😏
I didn't let that mom guilt get me down though. Thankfully, I only live about 3.7 minutes away from the Chick-fil-A so by the time I got home, the nuggets were still hot. I sat in my car and ate those heavenly bits of chicken.
I think I had the mom guilt because I knew I wasn't buying Trae some Chick-fil-A for dinner. It was after I enjoyed those nuggets that I realized - Trae is rude. I love him, but he's a teenager and he can be an asshole. He always leaves dishes in the sink, complains about walking the dogs, and always leaves his clothes on the floor in his bathroom.
That mom guilt went away quickly. Once I finished I had to get rid of my evidence. I was NOT about to deal with the questioning over a Chick-fil-A bag in our trash. I walked happily to the dumpster and tossed that bag along with the mom guilt right in the trash.
Mom guilt is real but sometimes it's okay to say your kids are assholes and eat some chicken nuggets.
Happy Hump Day!
