Poppy makes the kids special pancakes. On weekends at the lake he really outdoes himself. Accepting any, and all, requests. Ducks, turtles, TRex, Stegosaurus, snakes….you name it. And it’s kinda like looking at the clouds….we each see something different. A dinosaur to one, looks like an anteater to another.
Come Monday it’s back to boring, fresh from the freezer, pancakes.
One morning, after already talking one kid off the ledge about getting just plain round pancakes. Kid #1 finishes and leaves the table when Ella shows up and asks about her pancakes….
E: what shape were my pancakes?
Me: Umm, cupcake shaped?
E: I knew it! They are awesome.
