Time Out for Wake-Up Calls

Food Visions...

What are Malachy’s favorite two words, when waking up, besides “Good Morning?”
This morning, not only did he say he was hungry, but he said his whole body was empty. We read him a children’s book on the digestive system. (Yes, they do have children’s books on that now! πŸ˜‰ ) This morning, as I was barely awake, he was calling out, “Daddy, I’m hungry. My whole body is empty. I have nothing in my esophagus!” I don’t think I learned about the esophagus until HIGH SCHOOL! Unbelievable! πŸ˜‰
Sometimes, he wakes up with “food visions”. πŸ™‚ The other morning, he was telling me about his latest dessert vision. My dad had brought some Turkey Hill vanilla and chocolate ice cream along with some premium lemon and cherry ice, which he had for the first time the night before. YUMMY! So, he was telling me how he pictured a spoonful of vanilla ice cream on one side next to some ice on the other side, topped with some M&Ms, and a Pizzelle on top, AND it had to be in his ice cream bowl. We’ve made similar things for him, but he owned this one. So, what did we do? On this one, Mommy made his wish came true! There’s nothing like the excitement of having a wish come true, is there? πŸ˜‰
