Love Muffin

Happy Post Labor Day! And also Happy First Day of School for those getting up before dawn to hop on the bus. This year the kids get picked up by the bus about the same time as last year. Too early! They each ride separately since they go to different school buildings. Number One Son, again is picked up at the crack of 6:50am. Sweet Pea gets to sleep in since her bus arrives at 7:10am. It's sad that even in September, it's dark when they get up.

Even though she gets an extra 20 minutes Sweet Pea still comes down the stairs a little groggy sometimes.

This morning, Sweet Pea, shuffled down the stairs and settled into her chair at the kitchen table.
"Good morning, Sweet Pea, what would you like for breakfast?", I asked.

I heard a mumble from her haystack morning hairdo that sounded like Cousin It from the Addams family.

"What was that?", I inquired.

"I want one of those bagels.", she drowsily slurred. She pronounces bagel with a short 'a', like in the word bag.

Then she changed her mind, "No wait. I want an American muffin."

"Do you mean an English muffin?"

"Oh, yeah."
Hopefully, she wakes up by the time English class rolls around.

Hah, sweet. I quite like the idea of an 'American' muffin (banana please)for breakfast or a cinnamon bun...all those yummy foods that we can't get over here.

"American Muffin" sounds a lot better than an English muffin. Go USA!
