Today's Breakfast Conversation

Our morning routines are pretty darned set in stone. Routine is basically the only reason we can get out of the door each morning. One of our "this happens almost every day" is Eric makes what we've named "cheesy eggs" for breakfast. What are cheesy eggs? Scrambled eggs with some cheese on top. (shhh! Don't tell... it's our secret family recipe!)

Annika has recently and arbitrarily taken to disliking having salt and pepper in her cheesy eggs. So, this morning, Eric left out the seasonings. As he handed a plate of eggs to Annika, she said she didn't like them because they were too spicy. He replied that he left the salt and pepper out this time. She looked at him and asked, "So, what's in them that I don't like?" (Mind you, all of this is without her taking a single bite of the food.) Eric replied that there were only eggs and cheese, nothing else. She looked at him, smiled, and said, "Good job, Daddy!"
