Music to My Ears




Barely four hours of sleep last night, on account of a glass of bubble tea (yes!).

Neck-deep in boring numbers – stock inventory, sales figures. Excel sheets, formulas… ugh!

So not in the mood to experiment with new recipes nor even to attempt anything special. I decided to just make omelets for dinner. Plain and simple, no toying with presentation. Please don’t look at me that way.

Josh loves eggs –scrambled, poached, sunny-side up, soft-boiled, steamed, etc. So I knew he would gobble it up. Zoë, well, she eats pretty much everything. Because we had some minced meat, I decided to use that as filling, adding garlic and cheese. Easy-peasy.

Served them up. Josh went, “Yum! I love the cheesy part.” Good.

He quickly finished his portion and I asked him if he wanted some more. “I would love to have some more, Mommy!” After he was done, he told me that his tummy was full, but “maybe you could give me another small piece.”

That was music to my ears.

What is it about our children eating a lot of food that makes us so happy as mothers? Must be a survival thing...

Awww, Josh knows what's good. Sometimes it's the most easiest of meals that they love.

That is very sweet!!! I wish my kids loved eggs that much! Sometimes we do breakfast for dinner and the pancakes are always a hit...the eggs, not so much!

So adorable... and polite! LOL!

It's almost 11 in the evening here, and now, I want bubble tea. I wish there was a 24-hour bubble tea shop here in Vegas. *sigh* I guess I'll have to think about wandering into the heat to get one tomorrow! ;-)
