A Fly on Our Wall

If you had been a fly on our wall this morning (lucky you) you would have overheard a conversation that went something like this:

Me: Run upstairs and brush your teeth and make your bed while I get your breakfast ready.

Her: Sure Mom.

I then almost over exerted myself preparing her breakfast, what with the opening of two different cereal boxes (we like to do mixes, you know, keep things fresh and exciting), pouring, dabbling on of blueberries, etc. After waiting for what seemed like forever and a week to hear the sound of her making her way downstairs either walking or sliding, you, as a fly, would have heard this (in a slightly louder shriek voice):

Me: Annelise? WHAT in the world are you doing up there? I've been waiting to pour your milk forever.

Her: (Embarrassed silence)

Me: C'mon NOW or your cereal will be soggy.

Her: Oh, it's okay Mom, go ahead and pour it, I don't care if it's soggy. I'm busy getting Luke and Cocoa Bear ready for their wedding.

Well. Allrightythen.

A short while later you, the fly, could have offered congratulations to the happy couple, greeted their guests (only the heart bear and rabbit, it was a small, intimate affair) and...
enjoyed a light reception brunch of Kix & Cheerios with blueberries and blackberries.
It's what all the cool weddings are serving this summer.


  1. So Cute! I wish mine would eat a cold breakfast. I actually tried to serve Raisin Bran this morning so Griffin refused and went to school hungry. I have to get Luci up for the bus at 5:30 a.m. and it's not too pleasant making a hot vegetarian breakfast that early!

  2. wish all summer weddings could be like that!

  3. Hilarious! I love that you "over exerted" yourself opening the boxes of cereal...that's my kind of breakfast preparation.


I'd love to hear what you have to say. I try to reply to comments and answer questions within each post so be sure to check back from time to time. Thanks for visiting!
