My youngest son knows time is fleeting. Days are down to those we can count and he is "out on his own." I think we're both feeling the inevitablity of this major transition, even if we are not talking about it much. Around us, incredibly stressful and sad things are happening, so this weekend he decided we must have a big breakfast. Let's make a happy memory together. Amazingly, he can be incredibly sensitive and perceptive.
With his brother in town we had perfect timing for Gigantic French Toast, Papa's Fried Potatoes and something Mama whips up. Youngest made the grocery run and brought many of the fixings, mimosas and texas toast. 10am, my boys and I rolled up our sleeves and got cooking. By 1pm we were gathered together, with our significant loves and enjoyed an elegant brunch and each other's company. I know it will be harder and harder for these impromptu meals to happen, so this day, I just enjoy.
