There’s a classic story we tell around the breakfast table. It started one Sunday afternoon as I was frantically pouring children into church clothes and tossing warm pancakes onto a plate for the bellies of my little people. In the middle of all of the morning hubbub, I handed Andrew, my 5-year-old son, a bottle of syrup and asked him to put it in the microwave for 50 seconds.
Dresses pulled over tights, shoes on, hurry-hurry came the call for everyone to join us at the table. We sat down breathed in for two seconds, then held hands for family prayer. And in that very moment, a bang-pop like a gunshot went off. BANG! I screamed and hovered instinctively over my 3-year-old. The kids started panicking. In the aftermath of the sound, we took a quick assessment. We were all still there, untouched by harm, but microwave door had been blown open and sticky syrup dots covered our arms, walls, and the ceiling.
In his willingness to help, my tot had placed the syrup in the microwave for 50 MINUTES. And I had forgotten it was there. Twelve minutes into the cook cycle, the syrup container exploded, leaving us drops of syrup for everything in our house but our plates. We pulled out wet rags, topped the pancakes with our favorite, sweet-and-colorful YOPLAIT TRIX yogurt, and decided to make rainbows out of the morning. Which, as it turns out, was a rather tasty way to do breakfast on a Sunday morning.
