Pancake Desires

I was awakened this morning by the Girl Child ("GC") crawling into bed at around 7:00. I asked her why she got into our bed and she said, "because I love you". I thought that was very sweet and then she added, "also, I was very hungry and would like to go out for pancakes this morning".

I turned to my wife and asked, "what do you think, Mamma?"

And the GC said: "No, you tell her what she thinks."

I said: "What? You mean you want me to tell her what she thinks instead of asking her what she thinks about going out for breakfast?"

GC: "Yes." [Tone: emphatic]

Upshot: I am signing off to go take the family out for breakfast. Why? Because I believe I have just been told by my 3.5 year old what I should be thinking.

Ah, yes. My own have decided that I want to go watch the Yu-gi-mon movie so I'm preparing myself for that hour and a half festival of fun.

I think her thinking is quite sound!
Hope the pancakes were good!
(And watch out for those teen years!)

You two have clearly been where I am now.

I think it's time to start teaching her to make pancakes, so when she's seven she can bring you breakfast in bed. But be warned, she won't clean up the kitchen until she's at least eight.

That is a damn good point! And I appreciate the cautionary note.
