I made waffles as a special treat today even though this morning has been a little rocky. I just wanted to stand at the counter and whip them up with no fan fair. Cole had other ideas.
He was really interested in how the waffles cook differently than pancakes and how much they steam. So I explained the science behind the waffle iron. Words like surface area and evaporation were tossed around and it wasn't even 9am.
Then Cole was told to dry the puppy. He was sort of blotting him instead of ribbing. Ugh, now, he and I had a conversation about friction and causing heat. Can't this child just turn it off for a few minutes so Mom can wake up?! Lol ;)

Good luck with that.  :)  Sounds like he had an ok morning even if it's taking you a bit to get out of sleepyland.

Let's just say that it took way more effort than it would have 2 hours later. Lol

This is going to sound really bad....but I would have never been able to have that conversation about the pancakes vs the waffles.  I honestly had NO idea.  I use the waffle iron and that is all.  LOL.  I would have been able to handle the convo about friction being used to cause heat to dry the dog.  Science first thing in the morning isn't most peoples strongest suit.

Well, I'm glad I'm not the only one. That stuff just is boring as heck and I could care less WHY stuff happens.
