Like Butter

I woke up this morning to the clanking sound of dishes and glassware. I went downstairs to investigate, still so tired that my contacts felt glued to the back of my eyelids, and as I went into the kitchen I saw Jacob standing on the counter.

"What are you doing? Get down from there!"

"Mama I'm getting breakfast ready for the sisters."

I looked around. He had set plates out for everyone, napkins, glasses, and even Jack's plastic monkey plate at his highchair. I looked down at my son, now six years old, his hair sticking up from sleep and just melted.

Sometimes it's really easy to get caught off guard with this parenting gig.

He'll snag all the babes that way.

p.s. teach him to make a bad ass margarita when he's older and it will be guaranteed ;)

What a good kid!

It's moments like these that make you wish you had already taught him how to run the vacuum and the washing machine!

He wasn't even making breakfast in my very own personal kitchen and yet my heart melted, too! What a sweetie!

Ironic that my 12 year old waited for me to get out bed (barely) and annouce that he was starving and when was I going to make breakfast! Oh if he were 6 again.

I love how he said "for the sisters." Send him over here - we are in desperate need of a breakfast chef.

Absolutely! I love the "good" kind of 'off guard' best.

Thank you so much for sharing that wonderful moment with us! :)
