Happiness is … the smell of pancakes in the morning

I pictured my pancakes to turn out looking like a pancake photoshoot image.

But again, I’m cooking with a 3 year old.

Bubs suggested using yogurt to replace our usual honey.

He mixed the batter, scooped them into the pan, we flipped the pancakes together & he sliced up the bananas.

I love how mornings like these, time slows down and the smell of fresh pancakes fills our entire apartment as I engage in morning chit chats with my little chef. The Little One watches intently, waiting for his breakfast made with love.

I think they call this Happiness.
