Scavenger

Elisabeth doesn't like to eat what's put in front of her. She prefers to wait until everyone else is done and then pick from the remains of their plates. It would have served me well to remember that this morning.

Madeleine and Hank's breakfast request was toast with Nutella. Mid-breakfast the doorbell rang while I was in the basement doing some laundry. Madeleine and Hank decided the appearance of their friends meant breakfast was over, even if they hadn't finished, and with a quick yell down the basement stairs to alert me as to their whereabouts, they were outside in a flash.

Elisabeth pounced quickly. Like any good scavenger, she knew time was of the essence. Mommy would be back upstairs quickly. Move, move, move!

Success for her; a chocolaty hazelnut mess for me.
