It IS the most important meal of the day....  
So breakfast is a big deal to my Aaron.

He likes to determine (more like 'place an order,' actually) what he's going to eat for breakfast when I'm tucking him in the night before.


(Last night as Carrie is kissing cheeks and turning on nightlights)

Aaron.  What are we going to have for breakfast in the morning?

Ethan.  (to A.J.)  I chose pancakes this morning.  So you can choose tomorrow.

Carrie.  (under her breath) That's benevolent.

Aaron.  Okay.  Can we have eggs?

Carrie.  Yep, sure thing.

Aaron.  Fried eggs?

Carrie.  Yes.

Aaron.  With English mufins?

Carrie.  Yeah.

Aaron.   With butter and jelly?

Carrie. (...)  Yes.

(Carrie goes back downstairs and crashes almost immediately, and is awakened at 9:45 a.m. by Aaron, who crawls into bed with his mommy, all warm and cuddly, and pats her as she is waking up)

Aaron.  (whispers)  So when are the eggs going to be ready?


Yeah.  What am I doing sleeping when there are eggs to be cooked?!  :D

I think we should swap for a bit. You take Becca and teach her how to be cute in the mornings...

Ha Ha Ha! Sounds just like Bennett. Imagine the terror (and empty fridges) if they got together! Horrifying. ;)

Oh, my goodness. We'd have to have a constant run to the grocery store in the works.

The sheer volume and rate at which the boys eat is mystifying...

(I need a JAM icon....must go look!)

Jay's aunt had 3 sons all 2 years apart so they were all teens together - the oldest is now 6'7" and they were all tall like that even when they were teens - so she actually had to put a padlock on the fridge. They kept eating what she was going to prepare for supper the next day for the rest of the family in the middle of the night. ;)

And yes - JAM icons... I have several - and I belong to lots of fun icons - you could check out my profile if you like to find the comms. :D

*giggles* At least he gave you advanced notice. Mine like to wake me up at 5 a.m. and start demanding. *sigh* I'll trade you kids. ;)

5 a.m.?

Seriously. Not cool.

My mother's response to questions like that?

"Whenever you get them ready."

When my kids are your age, that'll be my answer, too. :)

Ethan is totally old enough to make a myriad of breakfast foodstuffs.

I used to make pancakes and french toast when I was 8. Eggs are harder to get right, but still...

Also, in case you haven't figured it out, my mom is not one of the people who are shiny and happy in the morning.
Carrie Leigh: ruby slipperscarrie_leigh on August 2nd, 2008 04:17 am (UTC)

They can assemble cereal. And put bread in the toaster. But like their father, the mess afterward is not worth the added minutes of sleep.

And I'm happy, after my first cup of coffee. :)

*pat pat*

They're young yet. You can train them.

Your boys are such boys! Of course, you do realize that your future daughters-in-law will be cursing you one day...

On the other hand, at least your kids like to eat. Trust me, that is a huge blessing. Taara seems to be hell bent on surviving on only one brand of yogurt and fresh air. *headdesk* She's such a fussy eater it just drives me nuts.

Honestly, mummy! What on earth were you thinking?

*shakes head*

Sleep < Eggs, yes? According to A.J., at least.

(I think sleep wins, but don't tell him that)
