It’s Sunday, and I’m already exhausted. It’s been a long week undergoing the latest lesson of parenting … potty training. If you’re a parent of a todddler reading this post. You get what I mean. You envision what your life will look like a week from now. So, can it please be Friday already and my kid will magically be telling me when he has to pee.

I need a stiff drink and some decadent chocolate. But it’s only Sunday and I’m already drained.

Fortunately, I whipped us a totally satisfying, indulgent, but good for you chocolate mousse. Believe it!

Avocados are meant for so much more than guacamole. Although, I’ll take guac any day of the week!
