Dirty dishes and a buffet breakfast!

Okay.... So this morning I am laying in bed and I can hear Parker in the kitchen doing who knows what. I hear lots of dishes being moved around. I was so tired I really did not care. It seemed to go on forever. I kept laying in bed thinking,
"What the heck is he doing?" I put my head under my pillow and tried to fall asleep. FINALLY after 30 min of loud dishes banging together it becomes quiet. But not for long. Parker comes running in my room and says " Mom I have a really really big surprise for you!!!" So I decide to get up cause I know I won't be able to get any sleep. I walk into the kitchen and he opens the dishwasher and he had unloaded the VERY full dishwasher and put all the dishes away. Well...... I was so thrilled until I realized that all those dishes were really dirty, and I for got to turn on the dishwasher last night. So Parker put away all the dirty dishes into the cabinets. I looked at him and he was so excited to show me. I was thinking to myself...." Oh my gosh, there is so many dirty dishes in my cupboards!" But I reached down and gave him a hug and told him thank you for helping me with the dishes. It melted my heart. What a thoughtful thing to do for his mom.
As if that is not enough I look up on the counter and there are 6 boxes of cereal and 6 yogurts sitting on the counter. I asked him what those were for. And he said, " I put out all the cereal we had and all the yogurt we had so you could choose what you wanted for breakfast!"
I could not believe that he made me breakfast too! It's times like these that you are so grateful your a mom! I felt so appreciated this morning, despite the extra work I will need to do this morning by finding all those dirty dishes he put away and washing them. I love Parker!




what a sweet boy!
