Two of our boys have a “special”. It started years ago when Jacob decided a bean and cheese burrito was his special. No salsa. No sour cream. Just the burrito. Not to be left out Joshua chose jell-o. Any flavor. That way he could have lots of specials… well, we don’t have jell-o that often. Which led to his request to have grilled cheese sandwiches and/or jell-o be his special. Now whenever we have those foods they announce to the whole family it is their special. It took a few years, but two weeks ago after church Andrew chose his:
A pancake. Hollowed out in the middle and filled with strawberry jam.
Not just any strawberry jam. Store-bought strawberry jam. And then fresh homemade jam spread across the top. He was very specific and super pleased.
Here’s to many more Drewby specials.
