Waffle Drama

20th February 2008

My kids usually eat Eggo waffles for breakfast (I console myself by buying the Nutrigrain blueberry version, so it’s somewhat healthy).  But we struggle to get breakfast eaten completely before being pulled away by the fun things the day holds. 

So today, Analise was whining that she was hungry at around 10am.  "I"m so hungry, Mommy.  I’m not growing!" she cried.  (Isn’t your heart tugged?  Poor girl.)  I pointed out that half her waffle was still sitting on the plate in the kitchen, and that was the only option. 

"It’s too cold!"  I popped it in the microwave for 10 seconds and handed it to her.  Whoops… too long. 

"It’s too hot!" (Is this reminding you of any fairy tales?)  I told her to wait just a minute and it would be just right.  She found a distraction playing in the den somehow, and the whining ceased, amazingly. 

A couple minutes later, Josiah walked in, munching on her waffle.  Of course, more tears. I just can’t win.
