I look forward to our ‘sandwich hugs’ every morning. Before Beefcake heads out the door, we have a little ritual. Beefcake opens his big arms and calls out ‘horseradish’, Pikelet says he’s ‘kobe beef’, Lollo wants to be ‘cornichon chippies’ and I’m pumpernickel bread, next we squish ourselves together and make a ‘sandwich’. It’s our family group hug.
The ‘sandwiches’ are always perfect even though sometimes they are ‘made’ with turkey, roquefort, tofu and peaches. Parents savor these special moments and Beefcake and I dread the day when our boys will be too ‘cool’ for our morning sandwich hug.
How about you? Do you have a family ritual you’d like to share? Drop us a comment!
