Out of the mouth of babes…

by GettingFreedom on September 18, 2008

My husband and I have really been trying to wake up earlier during the week. Generally we have been waking up at 6, and rushing around to get everyone out of the door at 6:40.

Talk about chaotic!

And, Nicholas has been acting up a bit at school and we wondered if maybe there was just too much going on in the mornings, and was causing him to be in a rut.

So, our quest began.

We’ve been waking up about 5 and since I have all this extra time and I must move to stay awake, I decided I shall make breakfast!

Willie didn’t know what to do with himself!

I hardly ever make breakfast, and if I do…it is pancakes/waffles or some form of muffin. But, apparently all of the carbs give Willie awful heartburn by mid-morning. He needs some “real” food, according to him. So, for the last 2 mornings I’ve made homemade whole wheat bicuits and sausage gravy.

I think I may have finally mastered the whole “gravy from scratch” concept. Who woulda thought that I could become so domesticated?!
anyway, last night as we were nearing bed, Willie asked if Biscuits and Gravy were on the menu for the morning. I told him that I had forgotten to pick up some more baking powder, so I would make something else..he just needed to let me know.

He never did, so I assumed that I was off the hook for breakfast.

Apparently not everyone felt this way!

When my daughter finished getting dressed and came to the kitchen for breakfast she opened up the cabinet to get her a plate and I asked her what she was up to.

“Just gettin’ me a plate for some biscuits and gravy, Momma.”

“Honey, I didn’t get to make any this morning. I’m sorry. You want me to get you something else?”
She got down from the counter and looked down at the floor and was walking away from me and said, “No, I guess that if the school has some, I will just eat theirs.”
I felt about 2 inches tall.

Who woulda known that they wanted homemade breakfast so bad.
