We RARELY get to have breakfast together as a family. Carter is off to work by 6 am, and there is no WAY this momma is going to wake her kids up EARLY for the sake of having a meal together.
But today is a HOLIDAY, which means it’s the perfect opportunity to huddle around the breakfast table/island and enjoy a nice, quiet start to our day together.
Did I say quiet? I meant crazy.
It’s not family time without our extended family. That would be Jace’s tools: Dusty, Felipe, Turner, Squeeze, Stretch, Rusty (who is currently missing…RIP), and various stuffed animals. Toys gotta eat too, according to Jace. He obviously does not do the budget around here.
It is definitely not picture perfect. (Yes Jace is licking a banana)
But they’re all mine.
Lots of laughter and LOTS of messes. But I loved every second.
And then the crown disappears, on to do their daily activities. Left behind is the proof that, yes, we did in fact gather together. Family bonding will most likely always leave some sort of evidence like this in our household.
But I suppose messes are a small price to pay for sweet memories made. By the way, I’ll get to this mess later.
I have a feeling one little munchkin didn’t quite get his fill, and will sneak back to scavenge for more.
Love this little bottomless pit.
How did you spend your Labor Day?
