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!!!.
