It's Thursday.... Something is happening today.
Suddenly it hit me and my eyes flew open to look at my clock just as Kameron walked into my room. At the same time we said, "Student council meeting today!"
Every other week Kameron has a student council meeting an hour before school. Until today it's always worked out that Frank has been home to take him and I haven't had to worry about it. I knew I'd have to take him today but it slipped my mind. I jumped out of bed and got into morning mode. I woke Keeghan up and promised him that if he moved quickly we'd run through a drive thru and grab some pancakes for breakfast.
I carried Kennedy from her bed to the bathroom. She whined at me. "Mama! It's NOT time yet!" She is her mother's daughter. "I know, baby," I said, "But we have to go early today. How about we go get pancakes?" She pried open her eyes that were still shut tightly and peeked at me... "Can we go IN?" She asked. She loves to go inside restaurants. Welllllll.... I told her we would have to see.
We got everyone dressed, hair
With an hour to kill, I debated whether or not we could go in and eat somewhere or if we should stick to a drive thru. I decided that if they were a few minutes late to school, it wouldn't really matter, so we took a chance and went to Denny's.
Over chocolate chip pancakes and hot cocoa, we discussed the really important things happening in our world... like "What kind of sea creature IS Plankton and does he really own a hamburger place under the sea?" We did dot-to-dot on the menu while Kennedy tried to convince me to put whipped cream in my coffee... which I didn't do. ;)
We finished up and cleaned the chocolate and syrup off our hands and faces just in time to get on our way to school. We pulled into the car circle just as the first bell rang and the kids jumped out and ran off to class after they blew me a kiss... I came home and googled Plankton.
Just in case you were wondering, he does NOT really have a hamburger joint on the bottom of the ocean.
