I didn't title this as a Mattie May's Merry Musing because it is something she did rather than said, but to us it was cute all the same!
Sunday after church, Mattie May and Katie came over before we went to see Granny. We decided instead of lunch we would fix us a nice breakfast. Well of course Mattie May wanted pancakes. She always wants Blueberry pancakes because that is what is pictured on the front of the box. So I cheat and keep blueberries in the freezer. Frank and I had gone to the grocery store on Saturday so I had some fresh bananas.
Katie started the sausage, Frank was getting the drinks and dishes, Mattie May and I were mixing up the pancakes. We had already measured all the ingredients and she was mixing it all up. I went to the freezer to get the blueberries and Mattie May told me she was going to do the banana. Without any of us looking at her, I explained that she could peel it but that I would have to cut it up because she knows she can't use a knife yet. About the time I finished my sentence and was turning around to go back to help her, Katie gasped and I saw Mattie May laying the banana peel to the side at the same time saying "Oh?! OK Lolo".
We all got tickled when we realized she had put the whole banana in the batter! She was upset because she thought we were all mad at her, but we all started laughing and she was OK. We sliced up the battered banana, poured out some pancakes on the griddle and she got to add the blueberries and banana.
All was well with the world.
