Hope For Breakfast

Hope springs eternal
in the heart of my 4 year old.

Waking he sang, "May we have Sherbet for breakfast!"
The exclamation point is not a mistake.
He, so sure of the glory of the day, used "may" merely for form's sake.

He's a glass-full type person
often heard asking, "Isn't this the Best Day?"

Hope springs eternal
in the heart of my 4 year old.

Even when oatmeal is for breakfast.

I don't know for sure if I could handle such springs of joy in the early A.M.....but I'm sure it's adorable. I think you should have given him Sherbet but then again I'm the internet aunt that spoils them and sends them back to their mother...hypothetically speaking :)
