Perspective

Last night I made pancakes for dinner (Thanks Misty for the dinner inspiration).  My 8 year-old brother Henry was over for a visit.  As we stirred the batter he asked if he could lick the spoon.  

I told him, "no."  I further explained that raw egg yolks in the batter could make him really sick with salmonella.

He said, "Oh, I forgot.  Ask a Mom and you always get worse case scenario."

Smartie Pants.

Talk to Henry and you always get the Biggest Smile Ever.

A valid insight.

I've gotta say, I've been eating raw cookie dough for nigh on 44 years now and I'm still standing!

I LOVE breakfast for dinner. Pigs in a blanket is my fave!

Um, doesn't he know you saved him a very painful night of well . . . you know.

He is so cute. I love the name Henry. It must be so nice to have a younger brother and to be close with him too!

Thursday must have been pancake night, as we had them too. Did Misty get that party started or what?

Hope you are having a great weekend!
