Another breakfast on ye old card table. Whoo hoo, vacation mode. (We’re staying at my in-laws’ Florida home, which is normally rented out but is in between tenants, so there is no furniture.)
Henry and I play a fun game almost every morning while I cook breakfast, and today, I realized that it’s equally fun for me to play it.
It’s called The Smell Game.
The Smell Game consists of, well, smelling foods and spices. I say, “Look, a banana” and then Henry smells it (at this point, I just put it under his nose for a few breaths – he can’t purposefully smell stuff yet, of course). Then I smell it, too. When he’s older, I’m planning to tell him to close his eyes and guess what he’s smelling. I never realized how rarely I smell the food that I’m cooking, and it makes the process so much more enjoyable.
Today we smelled:
Coffee (AKA what makes mommy a superhero)
Good smells all around. Now it’s time for some bad smells (AKA I’m going for a sweaty run!).
