I'm normally the first one up and I'll get myself going and then get the kids up. I have the routine in my head that no matter which child I wake up first, that our son will still be the first of the two to get up. He'll go in the bathroom and do his manly business, wash his face and then head straight for his favorite cereal and milk. This morning when I walked in the kitchen, our 14 year old son was just pacing back and forth like he had something on his mind. I asked him if he was ok and he said yes, so I asked him what was the problem.

He said that he was going to get some cereal but we didn't have any milk. { I don't know that we don't have milk unless they tell us we are out. } So I know how my son loves to eat, I tried to suggest other things that he could eat for breakfast until we go to the grocery store on tomorrow. I said that there were some chicken tenders in the freezer....and before I could go on.....our son was laughing and saying, "Chicken??? For breakfast???" I'm like, who said you had to eat a certain thing at a certain time of day.....if you're hungry and want it, just eat it...shoot!!!

So son asked me what his other options were and I saw some instant grits and mentioned that to him and then I started being real funny...I said to him that I see some english peas and a few cans of cream corn and some potatoes....we both are laughing at this point, but his thing was....he wanted something his cereal, he didn't want to take time out to cook him an egg or something.  I told him that he could always use water in his cereal and  he gave me that look and I looked up at the clock and had to get out of there before I was late for work.

Lovingly yours,

  1. LOL! Isn't it funny how if there is no milk, there is no cereal? If there is no cheese, there is no sandwich. They better get with the program!
    So, did he grab a can of peas and pop it open to eat on the way to school or not? LOL!
