My boys love for me to make shapes with their pancakes, and although I am far from a pro, it is really fun. There is almost always an "M," "C," and "J," a mickey mouse face, a heart for Tyson, and whatever else the boys want. This last time I made pancakes, I was really tired and couldn't think of anything else for dinner, so I just whipped up a batch of the easiest thing ever: breakfast for dinner. Josh asked for a mickey mouse face and Caleb asked for a "3." So those were the only two special pancakes I made.
Tyson being the awesome husband he is, tried to get Matthew to stop crying because he was "starving" or at least he thought he was. So he gave Matthew the "3" pancake thinking it was an "M." Matthew was appeased, but Caleb was nigh unto hysterical. I told Caleb I made him something even better and stacked three pancakes saying I made him a snowman. haha, totally worked. I gotta love when I am confident, the kids believe anything I say. I have to be really careful not to take advantage of that. :)
Josh took his mickey mouse pancake and wanted to make a snowman too. This is how it turned out. You have to love his creativity in using toy legos.
Then when he described it to us he said, "Here are the ears, the eyes, the nose, the mouth, the nipples and the belly button, and these are the legs."
I leaned over to Tyson, "Did you just hear what I heard?"
"I think so."
"Oh." Then to Josh, "Wow, I really like that, especially his face, really cute."
And yet again Tyson and I had to control our laughter so we could actually pray. But of course we took pictures first, because it isn't every day your kid puts nipples on his pancake. :) I'm just thankful it isn't any more anatomically correct.
