HJ is laying in my bed watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse the other morning while I jump in the shower.  Like most mornings, I don’t take a long shower.  It’s a quick process to get us both out of the house with brushed teeth every day.  As I turn the water off, I hear the pitter-patter of little feet scrambling about the house.  I shake my head and smile thinking of the shenanigans the little rascal is up to.  Then I hear the toaster “pop”!  I figured I was hearing things and continued getting ready.  I few minutes later, “POP”!  I get curious, throw some clothes on and start heading down the hall.  I am about 3 steps away and I hear the “pop” again.  Dear lord.

Last week, I showed HJ how to make is own toast.  He would stand over the toaster, and push the button, while I did everything else.

I look into the kitchen and find this

In total, there were 6 pieces of toast on the counter.  Two pieces were on plates and covered in peanut butter.  There was also a large glob of peanut butter on the floor.  The toaster was unplugged and pushed away from HJ because he knows he has to “be careful” around it.  See the chair pushed against the counter and the dishwasher open?  He leaned the dishwasher door against the chair so he could climb onto the other counter to clean his knife at the sink.  I am also guessing that means the knife was grabbed from the dishwasher (and dirty).

I asked him what he was doing, and he gave me this look,

But then followed up with, “I made you and me toast!”  Sure enough, I glanced at the counter again…

Isn’t he just melt-your-heart sweet?  After our peanut butter toast, he put the dishes in the dishwasher, went to the bathroom (where he told me to “stop looked at me!”), and dressed himself.

Here is his outfit choice from the front:

And the back:

Then he asked for a quick picture with mom before we headed out the door.


5 Thoughts on “Good Morning

  1. Oh my gosh he is SO CUTE. You can’t get mad at him for the messy kitchen when he does sweet & thoughtful things like making you both breakfast! I’ve always heard little boys like to take care of their mommies. I guess that’s true!

  2. Aww, so cute! What a nice little morning routine 😉

  3. That is the sweetest thing I have ever heard!! I just love him to pieces!!

  4. I heard a couple of guys talking about this in the New York subway so I looked it up online and found your page. Thanks. I thought I was right and you confirmed my thoughts. Thanks for the work you’ve put into this. I’d love to save this and share with my friends.
