When Chris was younger..see picture.
(my grandson)..He would call me very early, like 6 am (whispering) "Grandma can you come over now,I will make you breakfast!"
I would ask him .."is your mom or dad up yet?" It was always a NO.
So I would tell him to call me back when his parents are up.
AWWWW Grandma.........O.K.
An hour later... "grandma dads awake now...can you come over?,... Dad.. says O.K."
When I got there, a 1/2 mile away, he would be standing by the door, waiting for me!
With 2 bowels on the table filled with his favorite....CHERRIOS, for us!!!.
