This morning we were both up early and ready to go so I thought I'd treat us and go to McDonald's for breakfast. We arrived, got our meal and sat to enjoy our breakfast. Jacob chattered away to me, quite the little personality he is developing into. I'm just amazed at how quickly he's becoming a little person.
Back to breakfast. Another mom had the same idea as us and she brought her daughter to enjoy McDonald's this morning. Their breakfast did not go as smoothly as ours. Soon enough there were the typical threats to send the young one to go and sit in the car, which you know never happens. Then coaxing her to eat, then crying, then a fall, then swearing and cursing and it just went from bad to worse. As I watched and heard this situation going on I was so thankful for the little boy sitting across from me chatting away to me, eating his breakfast, sitting nicely on his chair. Thankful that I've never felt the need to lose my cool and resort to swearing and yelling at my son and thankful that Jacob is just such a mild mannered easy child to parent. Thank you God again for blessing me with this wonderful little boy that I get to be a mom to.
