The Best Breakfast Ever!!

Yesterday Hannah and I started our day as typical lazy Saturday morning of cuddles, snuggles, giggles and stories.  We leave the house for gymnastics only 30 minutes later than we do on work days but somehow the feeling is just more relaxed and we have such fun with that extra time!

As we were sitting on the couch together talking about the fun plans we had for the weekend she suddenly jumped up and said, ‘Mommy, I want to make breakfast for you!’

How sweet is that?!!

She quickly grabbed her little chair and climbed up to find her favourite Princess and Tinker Bell mugs.  (Climbing on the counters is a special treat that was allowed as mommy stood close.)IMG_8168

I was curious to see what she would choose for us to have for breakfast and it was neat to see how creative she was and that she chose a combination that I’ve never given her for breakfast.

She started by pouring milk in our mugs.  (Yes, your eyes are not deceiving you.  We buy our milk in bags.  If you’re new to the blog there’s a little post with a video here that generated lots of fun comments.)IMG_8170

After she poured our milk she wanted to cut up an apple for us.  She gave it the old college try when attempting to cut it with her toddler knife but then let mommy kick in and help a little bit.IMG_8171

In the end our delicious breakfast was made up of milk, an apple, mandarin orange and…parmesan cheese!  IMG_8177


Hannah had seen mommy in action with the camera and decided pictures of her creativity were required before we ate.  Love how she chose to take her pics.   (Heh.  A little self portrait included too.)

Hannah set her princess table for the two of us.  So, so sweet!  I’m sure you understand why this was the best breakfast I’ve ever eaten!!IMG_8187

I was already overwhelmed with love for my little sweetie preparing this when she told me the following as I took her out of the car at gymnastics.

‘Mommy, I know your back is sore so I made you breakfast to help you feel better.’

Oh sweetie….you sure did!!!

(Unfortunately the new mattress I purchased in late August has done a number on my back, shoulders and neck.  As much as I thought I was choosing the right one and have tried changing pillows many times, the pain is just getting worse.  I think the model I choose is just too soft for me.  Because of this she and I went back to the mattress store Friday night and took up the store’s offer of a 60 night comfort guarantee and I they have ordered a new mattress for us.  In the end it’s a more costly one than my budget allowed but due to a sale right now it’s only slightly more than the one I’d already purchased.  Yay!  It’s going to work out really well and I’m really hoping the pain disappears soon.  How could Hannah and I go wrong with a mattress called, ‘Sleeping Beauty’?)

All that to say she was listening as I spoke with the salesman last evening and wanted to do what she could to help my back.  Oh yes, and she put a Band-Aid on my back too!

Yes Shaoey, Mommy is feeling much, much better because of your loving care!! 

She melts me!  She truly, truly does!!!


  1. What a sweet, sweet girl you have! I loved reading this post and seeing pictures of your special breakfast.

  2. Oh, that is so cute! What a sweet girl she is:)

  3. What a sweetheart. She is learning well from her mommy! :)

  4. Hannah is such a sweetie. It really is all about the bandaids at this age. Hope the new mattress does the trick--back, shoulder, and neck pain can dampen the brightest of days.

  5. I totally understand "she melts me"... I don't think I really understood before I brought my MeiLeigh home. Hope your new "Sleeping Beauty" works "magic" on your back...

  6. Hannah is really sweet. You are both lucky to have each other.

  7. Glad to see that my 3 year old is not the only one that thinks parmasean cheese should be standard at every meal! Love it! I agree, 3 is awesome! I'm thinking 3 1/2 has been my favorite age so far! They are sooo funny, creative, and sweet. I overheard Marin telling his cousin that I was his "favorite friend". :)

  8. This is the cutest post ever! Look how proud she is! Love it!
