It’s too quiet out there.

Ever have one of those lazy Saturday mornings where you kind of wake up, snooze a little, wake up again, doze…kids come in and snuggle under the covers and make you all cozy so you fall asleep again?  I had one of those mornings this morning.  So much nicer than the regular poke in the forehead and the “Mommy…mommy…mommmmy” in the too loud whisper of a 4-year-old boy.  But I should have known something was up.  It was too quiet.  There was no fighting.  No yelling.  No crying.  No one came in to demand request breakfast and a drink.  I jerked up, fully awake.  I could hear the maniacal laugh of SpongeBob, along with a few recognizable giggles from the little boys, coming up the hallway so I knew no one had escaped been kidnapped.  When I got to the living room I was greeted with a “hi Mommy” and smiles.  Something’s going on.  I asked if anyone wanted breakfast and immediately met with no’s and maybe later’s.  Very weird.  I went to the kitchen to get a drink and saw this.

Now you see you don't

Last night this was an unopened, full bag of nacho chips.  This morning it was a gourmet breakfast for two early birds.  A gradeschool boy and his preschool age brother are perfectly able to get their own breakfast.  They have access to several cereals, Pop-tarts and cereal bars in the event their waitress mother is late or otherwise occupied.  Apparently the selection was not tempting enough.  Kellogg’s needs to introduce a nacho flavored corn flake for my little morning munchers’ discriminating tastes.  I guess they get points for at least attempting to close the bag, to keep the four chips that they left behind fresh.  And I guess they do get points for not being deceitful and hiding it.  Or is that points taken away?  Does anyone have the rulebook handy?

    At least the chips weren’t crushed everywhere! It’s never good when kids are quiet.
