Sweet Surprise

When I emerged from the bathroom this morning, Little Guy suggested that I sit down and eat my breakfast.

“Eat my breakfast?” I asked.

“Mmhmm,” he said.  “It’s on the table.”

“Did you make me breakfast?” I asked.

“Yes, I made you yogurt and granilla, and there’s more coming!” he said.

“Yogurt and granola?”

“Yep, I’m going to make waffles too!”

I thanked him and sat down to eat my breakfast.  It saves me so much time when he makes it.

As I ate, I asked him if it was Valentine’s Day today.  He said no, but to expect the same treat on that day, too.  I asked why he decided to make me breakfast this morning.  While he flipped waffles in the pan, he replied that since I had a long, busy day at work the day before, he would make it easier on me by making me breakfast today.

When I told the story at work, a co-worker said that I’m doing something right.  I must be.  At age 8, my son has compassion and a sense of caring for others.

I keep teasing him about when he’s going to make me dinner, and he says he doesn’t know.  Maybe I’ll start asking for breakfast, instead.  Breakfast rules!
