With summer break starting for the majority of families it will be harder and harder for moms to carve out a little bit of time for themselves. I know I’m going to miss those 2.5 hours of “me time” on Tuesdays and Thursdays when Nutty was at school and Tottie was at preschool!

Now, this may be TMI (too much information), but I have been guilty of taking an extra long time “going to the bathroom” just to get away from my screaming girls. I’ve also been guilty of sneaking snacks such as Quaker® Chocolate Chip Cookies into the bathroom with me just to get that 5-10 minute break. With only 170 calories and 10 grams of whole grains per serving, I don’t feel guilty about eating something sweet while trying to watch my intake.
I know I’m not the only one who uses the bathroom excuse for their “me time”! Come on, confess with me!
Quaker® Chocolate Chip Cookies allow me to be indulgent while still providing the power of Quaker® oats to fuel me for whatever the rest of the day might hold.
