Good Morning Sunshine – Wakey Wakey
Good morning sunshine….. Wakey, wakey little pan-a-cakey….. Yep. That’s how I wake Ethan up. Every. Single . Morning. That’s how I woke all the kids up when they were little too. And, they hated it. It meant time to get out of their nice warm beds and drag themselves off to school. 10 years later, guess what? They miss it! We laugh and joke now as they wake their own small fries up the exact same way. Funny how even little things like that carry over, huh? Starting each day with ‘Good morning sunshine’ as the 1st things those little ears hear has got to start their day better than a big booming voice yelling ‘GET UP’…
Good Morning Sunshine – Making Memories
Since Summer vacation is in full swing here in Vegas, I’m not having to Wakey Wakey my little pan-a-cakey so much. He’s sleeping in like a champ. It’s still “Good morning sunshine” when he stumbles out of bed. Because habit? Making memories? I’m not sure. But the other day my husband surprised him with a special Breakfast For The Boys kind of morning. Let’s just say I’ve never seen his little tushie get dressed so fast without prodding in a long time! He was excited to spend the morning at his fav hang-out. McDonald’s. Remind me to tell you about our ‘squishy tushie’ game some other time 😉
Look at how happy they are! They each got their favorite “yummy in my tummy’s” and then played on the playground after. It was a perfect place for a perfect special time. Isn’t it funny when you stop and think…. This is one of the only places that’s not simply a grab and go burger joint. It’s an American Icon. Think about – How young are kids when they see those golden arches and immediately know where they are? Generation after generation, it’s etched in everyone’s mind in someway, right? Everyone comes out happy. Oh, And don’t go feeling sad that I got left behind at home! No, I stayed under the blankie for a bit. Just 2 guys, out and about making memories. I do love McDonald’s coffee in the morning so it was kind of awesome my husband brought me a big ole cup home! Good Morning Sunshine!
What’s one of your favorite memories from childhood?
