We got out to breakfast sometimes on the weekends, and recently, we made one such trip. It was all of seven minutes from our house to iHop, during which Munchkin and Squeaker decided to launch a career in stand-up comedy.
It started when we passed a Chick Fil A billboard. Munchkin improvised a song. “Cow, cow, cow… CHIIIICKENNNNN!”
Squeaker joined in. “Chicken… Chick-ck-ck-KEN! Cooo-ooowww!”
This went on.
For a whole city block. (It felt longer, for the record.)
The boys paused for a breath, and Buttercup clapped, then added an enthusiastic, “Yay!” for good measure.
(She’s so adorable.)
SuperHubby and I chuckled softly, at which point Munchkin remembered that we were going somewhere. “Hey, guys?” he said. “Where are we going?”
“To breakfast, Munchkin!” Squeaker said. (He’s three. This slayed me.)
“I know that, Squeaker,” Munchkin huffed. “Where are we going to breakfast? Are we going to Moe’s for breakfast?”
SuperHubby and I both answered. “No.”
“To breakfast, Munchkin!” Squeaker said again.
“Oh! Oh!” Munchkin said. “I know! We’re going to Cici’s Pizza for breakfast!”
About that time, we pulled into the IHOP parking lot. “Oooh, Squeaker,” Munchkin said, “did you see all that deliciousness in the window?”
And it was delicious, and other than me forgetting both a bib and a sippy cup for Buttercup, all was well.
