Pancakes with Molly

Molly is such a great little sister. She adores her big brother, she wants to do everything JT does and be with him all the time. She misses him like crazy while he is at school. At 3 years old, Molly doesn’t fully understand JT’s allergies, but she knows on some level that certain foods will make him sick and she is very careful about it. She knows that she has to be thoroughly cleaned up after meals and that it’s not OK to share food with JT. What I don’t think she realizes is how much she is missing out on because of JT’s allergies, although I’m sure that won’t last forever. We all have to make some sacrifices to keep JT safe. I realized recently that Molly has never been out for breakfast. With JT’s egg allergy being his most severe, we don’t go to any restaurants that serve breakfast, even for lunch. So after JT went off to school today my Mom and I took Molly out for her first restaurant breakfast and she loved it. She got pancakes shaped like Mickey Mouse with whipped cream and syrup and chocolate milk. I also order her a scrambled egg with hopes that she would give it a try (our house is egg free) but she wasn’t interested, and since today was about doing something special for a special little girl that was just fine with me.

Forgot to snap a picture this morning, but here is the best little sister around!!
