The things they say!!

I got up at 4.45 this morning in order to wake my men so they could have something to eat and drink before the Fast of Esther started (around 5.30 am). They all got up, ate and drank and went back to sleep till 6.30.

I went in to wake Squiggy up. He looked so peaceful and sweet. So I sat down on his bed, and stroked his hair and face gently to wake him up, and told him “you look so sweet and yummy”. It was a tender moment. He cracked his left eye open a bit, and with a slight tilt to his mouth he said “So how about I stay in bed and look all sweet and yummy instead of going to school?”

Nice try son!!

  1. Ah, yes. The cuteness of our young is obviously a survival mechanism. 🙂

    I wish I could fast; my last fast made me ill for days.

  2. I did that once, when I was probably in High School. It was definitely not worth it in my opinion. I ate at like 4, went back to bed, woke up at 7:30 hungry, and by noon it was just as bad as normal lunch hunger.

  3. Lady Lock and Load

    My kids are no longer teenagers, but if I would have woken them and told them they look sweet and yummy they would have said GET AWAY! or something worse! They were not morning people, very grouchy in the a.m.
