I can hear you now….”Who eats Fudgy Chocolate Waffles for breakfast?”
I get it. Eating a healthy and balanced diet is important. Sometimes, though, you need something special. Whether celebrating a birthday, holidays or just to going back to school, whatever.
We are definitely celebrating the return to school in our house. I am READY. Thankfully, so is Evan. Just this morning he listed all the reasons he is excited to return to school. I can not begin to tell you how happy that makes me. After years of forcing school upon him, hearing excitement in his voice makes my heart melt. It’s a moment worthy of fudgy chocolate waffles if I’ve ever seen one!
Given the opportunity, Evan would smother these with whipped cream out of a can and sprinkles. He learned that this is his favorite topping at our community pancake breakfasts. Needless to say, that is not something on the menu very often but it sure makes him happy.
