Sunday Morning Breakfast

Morning came gently - the bedroom was warm, yellow light seeped in from behind our heavy drapes, and M's little body next to mine reminded me I wasn't dreaming. Before long, the rest of the house woke, too. Sassy came pounding up onto our bed, the boys made noise, flipping on the television in the den and bickering about...something. Our conversation was quiet, so as not to wake D. But he did and after some more sweet talk, he soon got up and M and Sassy followed, leaving me happily in my bed. I flipped on the news and decided a movie was more fun than reality.

After some time, D brought me coffee, adding to the laziness of the morning, not suggesting I move from my cocoon. But that wasn't what "made" the day for me.

Just when the wife learned her long-thought-dead husband was alive, M came in with a breakfast plate for me. She'd made it herself. Red grapes dotted a plastic "Maisy" plate, a Nutrigrain bar huddled beneath one-eithth of a flour tortilla, on top of which sat five or six Wheat Thin crackers. Roundabout that were some Cheese-its and colored fishies. Next to all that was a plastic cup of applesauce. M's smile was shy and proud and with just a hint of worry. I kissed and cuddled her, saying thank you, thank you, thank you.

"Breakfast in bed! How very wonderful!"

I say, I think that was the best breakfast I've ever had.

It sounds like M’s got a future as a gourmet chef, and ya know if the truth be told I’ve heard tell that Cheese-itz are akin to the nectar of the gods, or at least what they snack on when they’re drinkin’ that nectar stuff that they drink! Its sorta that perfect food that we all are searching for, though ya do gotta stop around half a pound’s worth or its all hell to pay later!

Yes, Dana! She's really something (how did that sound? LOL) else. She's a swirl, an ice cream sundae topped with popcorn and Cheese-Its and only a little banana... ;)

You know, Fromage, when I posted, I did remember that you have a special affinity for cheesy junk snacks! Cheese-Its in particular are yummy wonderful!

How sweet and the way you told us about it made the whole thing even more engaging. I wish my children were small again.
