Grumpy Grumpersons / Whole Wheat Pancakes

Waking up with a cheerful disposition has never been a strong suit for Red and Blondie.

In their defense, they got off to a rough start. From day 1, one twin or the other would inevitably wake to a punch in the mouth, a small foot inserted into a rib cage, or a piercing scream that could jump start your car, much less wake someone sleeping next to you.

Here are the Grumpy Grumpersons waking up from a nap.

We. keep. our. distance.

In the meantime, TDH or I will fix breakfast, just the way they like it.

TDH loves making pancakes for the kids, a Saturday morning routine. We've been using this recipe for whole wheat pancakes. A good healthy tip is to use 100% maple syrup. It's richer, so you don't need as much, and any food in it's original state is a good thing. Also, consider sweetening with fresh fruit, like strawberries, blueberries or bananas. Enjoy!!

I can completely relate to morning grumpies...I have a 17 year old that is a happy wonderful person unless you wake him up! ~smile~
Fortunately the grumpiness is short lived.
