Almost a few years ago, I wrote these words: Even though there are no kids in the picture right now, I cannot wait to see my husband be the ultimate “Pancake Dad” as he whips up his version of “Uncle Buck Pancakes.” Today that dream came true … and my heart is full.
Our counters were topped with pancake ingredients, the mixing bowls and measuring cups were dripping with pancake batter, the mustard and ketchup dispenser bottles were full of soon-to-be pancakes, and the griddle was hot and ready.
While the bacon crackled away in the oven, Hudson was playing with his toys in the kitchen and my husband was squeezing the batter into playful shapes and sizes … from letters to Mickey Mouse, his creativity was flowing and my heart was overflowing.
We set the table, placed Hudson in his chair, and sat around the table eager to enjoy the feast that was prepared. Unsure of what was placed on his tray at first, Hudson grabbed the H-shaped pancake, took a bite of it, and quickly discovered that his Dad is the ultimate “Pancake Dad.”
I think it’s safe to say that this Pancake Sunday tradition won over all of our hearts … and it’s a tradition that is here to stay.
