Breakfast Parfait
Being the mother of a small child can make you crazy when you have asked your child to do something three times, and they look at you like you have two heads.  But, when your child says “Mommy, I’m sleeping in the living room tonight so I can make breakfast for you for Mother’s Day”, your heart melts.  And, when you wake up the next morning and discover that your child with the help of your roommate, has set a formal table and has breakfast all prepared, well, your heart just explodes with joy.

My son, Spane, got up at 5:00 this morning, and with Maria’s help, he cleaned up the living room, then they set the table together, put fresh flowers on the table, put the card he had made at my place setting, put my presents from our roommate, Maria, on my desk, and then, finally went back to sleep exhausted until I got him up at 7:30 am.

He didn’t feel too good when I woke him up, so he asked me to please help myself to coffee, and he would get up in a little while to make breakfast. I was shocked when I saw the lovely table.  Last night, I made a pot of coffee and left it on the counter – Maria didn’t know I have coffee service, so I put the coffee in that, and grabbed my camera to take pictures.

Shortly, Spane felt better and made me sit at my desk while he prepared breakfast.  We had cantaloupe, strawberries, toast with your choice of butter or Nutella, and Build Your Own Breakfast Parfait.  My “Transformer” card was an umbrella that opened up to be a lovely flower with a wonderful message, “I love you so much.  You are my heart.  Thank you for spending time with me.  Love, Spane”

There cannot be any other Mother’s Day better than this one.  I love my son, I love my son!
