Don't Mess With Breakfast
There are few things my boys -- all three of them -- like more than breakfast. A usual Sunday (today was NOT a usual Sunday) includes a morning trip to the Egg & I for some breakfast. The boys are very well-behaved at this restaurant and because we go so often all the waitresses know them. It's fun to go to a place where you are a regular. It's a bit like, "coming home."
My boys are such experts at breakfast that they patiently wait to order (coloring all the while). Then when the waitress shows up Cooper announces, "I'll have the Waffle Express!" Usually the same is ordered for Mason. When it arrives they heartily dig in. The Express includes a 2 small-ish waffles, 2 scrambled eggs, 2 links of sausage, and an enormous dollop of butter.
My boys push the butter aside -- because as Cooper once told us it is NOT ice cream -- and dig in. Coop always finishes his waffles and makes a significant dent in everything else. Mas always finishes his eggs (and any Coop leaves behind) and usually finishes everything else, as well.
