Four AM Mom thought, “I wish we had a mini fridge in our bedroom.”
I’d have bottles of water, juice boxes, oh my goodness and my favourite snack – energy bites!
No-Bake Peanut Butter Energy Bites
1 1/2c old fashioned rolled oats
1/2c peanut butter
1/3c pure maple syrup
1/3c semi-sweet chocolate chips
It's honestly not that my kitchen is super far away, but I wouldn’t have to walk up and down all those stairs, I wouldn’t have to worry about making any extra noise that could wake either of my daughters, dogs or husband. Plus, I’m also sore from my caesarean and would rather not have to leave my room in the middle of the night.
Oh, and how could I have not thought about bottles? I could store my breast milk for the hubby to do a night feed.
Genius! Pure genius!
Why didn’t I think of this sooner?
And what else is brilliant? Trading your night side table for a mini fridge for the first few months postpartum! Everything is within reach, right when you need it!
