About 17 times a day, the girls do or say something innocent and yet extremely funny. This is one of those times. When we get home from school, the girls always want “second lunch”, as I like to call it. Earlier in the day, Little Miss C said she wanted waffles for second lunch. Fine by me.
When we got home, I start to unpack lunch boxes and backpacks, sort mail and remind the girls to hang up coats and put away shoes, gloves and hats. Normal stuff. Little Miss C asks for her waffle. Yeah. Yeah. Let me finish putting all this stuff put away. Give me 5 minutes.
“Momma, can I please have a waffle?” Yeah. Yeah. In a minute.
“Momma, I really want a waffle.” Yeah. Yeah. Hold on a second. (See the time amounts decreasing. Somehow I subconsciously know my time is running out.)
Then she comes to the table where I’m sorting through school work. “Momma, I got it all ready for you.” Huh? “The stuff to make me waffles.” Oh yeah. My time is up. I gotta get the waffles or bedlam will break out.
And this is what I see, so I can make her waffles….
Is that not the cutest? I start laughing and Little Miss C is totally wondering why. I can’t help it. It’s funny and adorable.
Then I grab the camera, because I want to remember this moment and I ask Little Miss C to jump in the picture. Little Miss C is at the picture stage where we get one of two faces. It’s either goofy Little Miss C as above or it’s I’m smiling and I think I’m smiling nicely, but really I’m trying to show you every tooth in my mouth with a frozen smile.
Some day we’ll get back to the genuine smile. Either way, it’s cute. Waffles anyone?
