My kids LOVE crepes. They beg for them for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Grandma is usually the person that caves and makes them for them, after a sleep-over.
But, last night I promised them for breakfast today and wouldn't you know? That was the first thing out of Bailey's mouth..."You PROMISED crepes for breakfast!" (spoken all accusatory, like I wasn't going to make them...)
The recipe requires 4 eggs. Hmmmm...4 eggs...I have 4 kids...I knew it would happen..."Mom! Mom! Can I crack an egg?" So, after they each had a turn, with only one of them getting shells in the bowl, I made the crepes.
The children are getting older, bigger and requiring more food. This became evident when each of them ate 4-5 crepes for breakfast. Each. As in, I made like 18 crepes...and they ate them all. I wasn't going to make a whole new batch for my breakfast...so it's their fault that I will be eating left-over onion rings for breakfast.
All in all, a wonderful morning. Even if they all did keep calling me Grandma. Guess it was their way to point out that only Grandma goes out of the way, to make them a nice breakfast. However, I see nothing wrong with yelling at them to "Hurry up and swallow!", while feeding them granola bars and grapes, on the way to school.
