Pancakes for Breakfast

Pancakes for breakfast,
What a yummy treat!
Here come the children,
The pitter patter of little feet.

They gather at the table,
Their tummies are a rumblin',
Chattering and laughing,
Not a one is grumblin'.

Pass the butter, if you please,
Here comes the syrup now.
Mapley goodness trickles down,
From hungry little mouths.

"Thank you, Mommy"' they exclaim, 
As they finish their last bites.
Then rush to give maple syrup  kisses
To their mother, smiling bright.

    I couldn't relate to this more! Both my kids love their pancakes and maple syrup and yes of course, I do get syrupy kisses for serving their fav delicacy. So loved the read, Kim.
