“Can I cash in a dinner coupon for breakfast” – Brad Harvin 7:20 am
“Sure you can” – me 7:20 am
“No. I don’t want to. I’ll cook breakfast” – Brad
“No. I’ll cook breakfast” – me
And then I tried to get out of bed. But he wouldn’t let me. I wiggled free and raced towards the door. He was right behind me. Fighting me making breakfast for him. Can you believe that???? What man in his right mind fights his wife trying to cook him breakfast while he stays in bed with the baby. I mean, really???? Actually, I can think of a couple reasons why he would fight me. First, he typically does everything. And by everything, I mean everything…well, other than nurse the baby 😉 Anyways. It’s hard for him to let me do anything for him. Second, and probably most important, the last time I cooked breakfast (2 years ago) I almost burned the kitchen down. Literally. Brad walked into the kitchen at the exact moment that I accidentally caught the roll of paper towels on fire while simultaneously burning the bacon. Whoops! I mean, seriously, the way I cook around this man you wouldn’t have a CLUE that I actually have some talent in the kitchen….I turn into a bumbling idiot.
But this morning I won a chance to redeem myself! Bacon, eggs, toast coming right up! Well, kinda. The first 3 pieces of bacon went to the dogs (but I haven’t told Brad yet, so ssshhhh!) It didn’t turn out gourmet, but it was edible. Hot diggity dog! Maybe my cooking mojo is coming back!
