A loooong time ago (August 12, 2012 to be specific), I wrote about making pancakes shaped like numbers for my kids. I was concerned that I had opened a can of worms and that I would forever be spending my Sunday mornings making number (or “numbah”, as baby J used to say) pancakes.
I’m here to tell you that my prediction was 100% accurate. Today, January 4, 2015, I made “numbah” pancakes.
I don’t mind.
I was happy to make it through the potty training phase of life. I’m thrilled that my kiddos sleep through the night and no longer wake up crying (knock on wood).
But I will really, truly be sad when J Man turns down pancakes.
That’ll never happen, right? Nobody ever turns down pancakes.
Especially not these pancakes. They’re whole wheat, but they’re so light and delicious that you’ll never believe they’re “healthy”.
You know what makes pancakes not healthy? Giant spoonfuls of almond butter and huge glugs of maple syrup.
My boy has changed since 2012.
But I will always always top my pancakes with almond butter, banana and maple syrup.
