Thursday Morning Muffin
Given that I now know that Nic ‘has never like sausages’ (ahem … I beg to differ) – I microwaved a healthy Canadian style turkey bacon muffin for him this morning.
Poked my head in the door to check on his progress.
He laid balanced on his elbow, eyes scrunched up in anger.
“I HATE these things!! You try to bite the ham and it falls out!!”
Sure enough, the sandwich had a bite out of it and the ham lay on the plate away from it’s muffin of origin.
Now, Nic is not a brat. He’s not overly dramatic – so the comic value in his morning meltdown had me staring at him in amused observation.
I backed out of the room and continued my morning routine.
Before he headed out the door I said as dramatically as I could: “Muffiiiiiiiiiin”!
You’ve gotta pick your battles. I could have ruined his groove by getting angry at his ham slice reaction – or I could do what I did.
He ended up laughing out the door to school.

Love the squirrel!
I don’t care that the meat falls out. I enjoy those frozen breakfast sandwiches. They’re easy to prepare and the taste yummy. 😀
Good job Mom! You have successfully chosen the prong of the ‘fork in the road’, which leads to a healthy human person!! Excellent..keep up your good work for the future of America..(patriotic music quietly playing ).
lol! I’ll start preparing my speech for how I changed the world by taking the high road on the muffin.
