Cinnamon Sugar Wall

Tonight while we were eating dinner of bacon, eggs, french toast, and whoops I forgot hot buttered toast.  During dinner PS was struggling with her chocolate milk in a straw, so R took off the cover for her.  Really not a problem she drinks out of cups with out straws all the time.  Later she went to climb down from her chair she knocked her cup, it fell off the table, did a little acrobatic flip motion, with chocolate milk cartwheeling everywhere before it settled on the floor.  The milk was contained to a small 6 foot area.  I just sat waiting for the cup to stop moving while R jumped up to grab a towel.  When he came back he crawled all over the floor wiping up the milk so I could wash the floors after we finished.  When he turned around to wipe under the table his only comment was, “good grief it is just like the government corrupt from the bottom all the way to the top.”

When the girls remembered they wanted toast, the were problem solvers putting the bread in the toaster and getting it out when it popped.  I put butter on PS toast while E and little A did their own, PS was with out cinnamon sugar, because she was too busy licking her butter off her toast.  Kerrygold for the win!  The girls were taking turns with the sugar shaker when R looked over and little A and asked “What are you trying to do build the Trump wall of sugar”?  We took the sugar shaker away from her.

What about your house, do you have a butter licker?  Or a political comedian like we do?

This was my favorite mug as a child.  It brings back hot toast hot chocolate memories.  It is old, and I assume one day it will be antique although the monetary value will be little, the memories are great.  Do you still have your favorite mug?  We keep it hidden in the top cupboard because we have lots of humans in our house who spill, things, drop things, and break things.
(and I am not just talking about the little kids…)

Go hug your kids, they need your love
