Breakfast Creation

Long time, no blog. It feels like I have only picked up my camera a handful of times in the last few weeks too...but ask me what I've been up to and I honestly don't even remember. Seriously, not much.

We are heading to Florida on Saturday for the week. I am really looking forward to being with my family and being there for my grandmother's 80th birthday. I send her pictures a few times a year and we were able to get down to Florida last year, which was wonderful. She and Ella both talk alot. They get along great! :0)

Life is full of it with a 4 year old. I inconveniently forget that she knows everything. Jeez how life would be so much easier if I would just get that through my scull. But my goodness, do I love that little brain of hers.

The night before....

Ella: "Mommy, maybe when we get up in the morning I can make my Ella's Special Creation for breakfast?"

Me: "What is that?"

Ella: "It is 5 jellybeans, 2 M&M's and a pancake all mixed together. And then maybe you can help me cook it in the oven because it would be too hot for me to do."

Me: "Sounds good. Remind me in the morning and we will do that.

The next morning....

She got her 5 jellybeans (ate about 10 more in the process) and 2 M&M's. I made a pancake for her and she mixed it all together with some syrup.

She was hesitant. She checked it out for a bit because the jellybeans and M&M's were all melted.

Ella: "I don't really like the jellybeans anymore."

Me: "Maybe next time we should put more M&M's in and less jellybeans."

Ella: "Ya. Maybe next time we shouldn't add any jellybeans or pancakes. Just M&M's and syrup. That would be good."

I love that she made her special creation in her special dress. Can't think of a day when my youngest stops dressing up.

Awww...what fun...and what a funny girl! I'm sure those jellybeans didn't taste the best in that pancake. I don't blame her. ;)

Okay, so why didn't Google Reader ever show me this post?! Didn't see it until now, seeing your newest post! Hmmm.

At any rate - she sure is a creative girl and you are an awesome mama for going with i!!! Love it that she is all dressed up in her princess costume, and love it that she didn't like her special creation so much after all. melted jellybeans, yuck! but what great memories.

I love that you let her have her creation even though I'm sure you pretty much knew it wasn't going to be so good! And, I agree with everyone else too - the fact that she had her special creation in her princess dress just makes it!

wow,again what gorgeous photos. That creation looks delicious.

I love that she thinks she should skip the jellbeans and pancakes and just go for m&m's and syrup. *L*
