Since Wonderboy is still experiencing some sleeping issues, morning wake up is a bit more of a chore. Answering this challenge to my creative, think ouside the box, motherhood, I have invented a new way to embrace the day with a laugh and a smile.
I call it: GENRE BREAKFAST!!!
It is reminiscent of my days in improv class and we had a hoot with it this morning. I'll elaborate:
A certain type of movie or behavioral genre is chosen. The family then prepares and eats breakfast acting in that genre. For example:
Horror Movie Breakfast:
*SHRIEEEEEEEEK!!!* "Mother, the eggs, the eggs, they stare at me so!!"
"Don't worry son, I'll kill them!!!" ~mother annihilates eggs with fork~ "There son, they won't hurt you scrambled!!"
"Forsooth young offspring, the cake of pan awaits"
Soap Opera Breakfast:
"Mommy I must confess something."
"What, my darling?"
"I've been eating another yogurt" (bites hand in guilt)
"Oh no!" (backhand to forehead in grief, "And I thought this was the only one!!"
Goth Breakfast (for the teenagers):
Son: *grunt, snorfle, ergh*
Mother: *scratch, grunt?*
Come up with your own and do share!
