Breakfast Anyone?

Yesterday morning when I walked, bleary-eyed, out of my bedroom to make the morning coffee I discovered my 9 year old sitting at the dining room table sipping a large mug of fresh hot tea and reading Calvin and Hobbs.

Weird.

"I wanted to get an early start on school, Mom."

Weirder.

This morning at 5:55 I heard an elephant in the kitchen wrestling with the stove.  When I got up 45 minutes later I discovered my 3 yo, my 5 yo, my 9yo all sitting at a set table eating scrambled eggs and toast and hot tea.  My also bleary-eyed 16 yo was standing by the table looking shocked as the 9 yo handed her a plate of breakfast. 

There was a plate for me and my husband as well.

O.k.?!?

So I did what any self-respecting mother would do.  I instantly taught my 9 yo son how to make coffee.

Weird works for me.

This is awesome! You must have that knack my mom has (had). I used to think rubbing lotion on her feet & doing her nails was fun. I didn't realize it wasn't fun until I hit puberty.

Crazy.
